This is an example of an over complication, in a simple and beautiful story. Cinderella should be about the triumph of good over evil.…

    In the poem “Cinderella,” Anne Sexton uses sarcasm to say that nobody ever ends up being happy and never has that fairy tale ending that they all want. Sexton wants to show how society is under an illusion that all this is real. She is also saying people cannot just become happy despite their good fortune. Sexton uses sarcasm as a way to entertain and portray her points that she is trying to make. At the beginning of the poem she gives examples of many success stories of the normal rags to riches and tragedy to triumph themes. These stories still don’t guarantee you for having a perfect life or being happy. She does this only to build you up to get you thinking of the normal Cinderella that we all know and love.…
