The Emperor is Naked!

In Fairy Tales on November 20, 2008 at 1:00 am


I could never forget the boy who told everyone to see in the fairy tale “The Emperor’s New Clothes”. He is one of the rare and true heroes in fairy tales. Although he was a character in a fairy tale, he broke the mold of the fantastic by seeing what is true and speaking about it shamelessly while everyone else in the Empire, including the Emperor, saw but pretended not to see. Some may refer to him as an innocent, someone who with no concept of tact or shame yet or other codes of formalities. But I would rather refer to him as a boy who refuses to be ignorant, even if being ignorant means a life of glossed-over comfort.
