Hannan Merritt Discussion Notes The Devil 10/3/07 Discussion Notes In “Tsar Saltan” the Prince has a magical helper that is an animal/woman/magician who acts almost like a fairy godmother by helping him in times of trouble. Weirdly enough it is kind of like the magical animal helpers in the Disney version of Cinderella. “’Hail, fair Prince! But why beclouded, / silent like a rain-day shrouded?’” (392). Repetition. In “Tsar Saltan” repetition is a huge part of the piece because Pushkin wanted the tale to sound like it had come from an oral tradition. Here is just one example of repetition, “’Merchant guests, / Long your voyage? Far from rest? /Are things sound abroad or parlous, / can you tell us any marvels?’” (385). This is also repeated on page 381 and page 390. The idea of transformation is not viewed as an evil, devilish act but in fact as a good thing. The Prince is transformed into a “bumblebee” (389) allowing him to travel to the Tsar’s palace where he sees what is going on at the Palace.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
