The Gothic influence of Snow White’s Evil Queen

The website Tor.com has published a very interesting article, ‘Ayesha, White as Snow: H. Rider Haggard’s She and Walt Disney’s Evil Queen’. As the title suggests, the author of the piece, Gilbert Colon, looks at the similarities between Haggard’s eponymous protagonist and the presentation of the Evil Queen in the Disney animation. The article pays close attention to costuming which I found very interesting as, in my opinion, the Evil Queen has one of the best outfits in Disney (followed, of course, by Maleficent).
