some thoughts on LRRH

Why is the little girl dressed in red before being sent to the woods? What symbolism stands behind this? Is it in advertising of her “becoming a woman”? Is it meant to deflect danger? To make her easy to find? Who should be able to see her? The huntsman? The wolf?

RED is usually a colour used to symbolise danger – so why is LRRH wearing a red hood? Does it stand for the dangerous thoughts happening inside her head? Is it possible that the whole surface moral is contradicted by the cap? A hidden message perhaps, understood by clever girls?

It seems I started to mix LRRH and “The Wolf and the Seven Little Kids” as a small girl – for me, LRRH always cut the grandmother from the wolf’s stomach and filled it with stones. No huntsman necessary…
