Compare and contrast_i_am_comparing_a_ Document Transcript

  • 1. Compare and Contrast By Austin Blake I am comparing Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves and Aladdin so I can understand folktales better. Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves is a short story I recently read at school. Aladdin is a Disney movie with a lot of singing. They were both good stories. They are similar because they both contain good and evil people. In Aladdin, Aladdin showed goodness by making one of his wishes for the genie to be free. Also Jafar, showed evil by tying up Aladdin and throwing him into the water to try and kill him. In Ali Baba, the thieves were trying to kill Ali Baba. But, Morgiana was saving Ali Baba by killing the thieves. Aladdin used magic to make himself a rich prince. Jafar used magic to turn himself into a snake and later the most powerful genie in the world. They both use good and bad magic to help get what they wanted. The bad people try to get rid of the good main characters. Sometimes good things happen in both stories. In Aladdin and Ali Baba, they both ended with people getting married, Aladdin to Jasmine and Morgiana to Ali Baba’s son. They lived happily ever after. In both stories, the bad characters don't have a happy ending. Jafar and the parrot get trapped in the lamp. Then get thrown in the desert and eaten by the cave of wonders. They are different in where they take place. Aladdin takes place in Acraba, a make believe city. Ali Baba takes place in Persia, a real country. Another thing that makes these stories different is in Ali Baba the animals didn’t talk, but in Aladdin, the parrot talked and did mean things. In Ali Baba, people could fit into small baskets and in Aladdin a carpet could fly. Also, a rock moved by saying a few words and a person came out of a lamp. Donkeys were many different colors. A genie grants wishes. All of these are very unbelievable. After comparing and contrasting Ali Baba and Aladdin, I learned that they are different because they happen in different places and have different plots. I also learned that they are similar because they both contain good and evil people. Also, they are folk tales that use magic to get some things that they want and that they can’t get any other
