Differences and Similarities in the Story of the Three Bears fairy tale
There exists a great variation in the earlier version of “The story of the three bears “and
the later version of “Goldilocks and the three bears." The fairy tale is similar in both versions
only that there exist differences in the manner in which the authors present the various elements
of the story such as the characters, setting and the plot. However different elements remain
unchanged within the two versions of the story. Therefore there exist similarities and differences
in the two versions as will be discussed below.

characters. Firstly, in the first version of the story, the female character, a woman is referred to as
Silver Hair while in the second version, the same character, now a pretty girl is named
Goldilocks. The three bears in the first version are referred to as little bear, middle bear, and a
huge bear. This aspect changes in the later version where they are referred to as papa, mama and
baby bear. This discrepancy in the naming of th...
