“…there are the analogies of the apple with the fruit of earthly desires in the Biblical garden of paradise which brings death into the world but at the same time makes Adam and Eve aware of their sexuality and godlike power to create new life.

–N. J. Girardot, “Initiation and Meaning in the Tale of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”
