While reading the three seperate stories Bluebeard, Fitcher’s Bird, and The Robber Bridegroom, we can see that the main storyline is similar in all three. All of the stories tell of a woman who is planning to marry a man that she thinks is a good man. The woman does not know that the man in each story is actually a terrible person. The men in each story plan on killing their bride by luring them into a room where he plans to follow through with killing her in a unique way. The man in Bluebeard kills the bride by slitting her throat, the character in Fitcher’s Bird wants to chop her into pieces, and in The Robber Bridegroom wants to cook and eat the woman. Each of these men share the characteristic of a criminal due to the murder that they each commit on the women in the three stories.
It is difficult picking which of the three is my favorite story because they are all pretty disturbing tales. However, I would have to say that Fitcher’s Bird was my favorite because it was the most interesting story to read overall. My least favorite tale of the three would probably be bluebeard because I felt like Bluebeard came off more creepy than the other men in the stories. Although the men in the other two tales were evil and obviously something had to be wrong with them mentally that would make them want to kill these women, I felt like Bluebeard was more creepy.
