The shards of glass, the snowflakes, the roses This is why the story has endured so long. It is simply gorgeous. Lewis took her, whole cloth, and her sleigh too Vivid memory - this story was the first time I'd ever heard of "Lapland," and it seemed like such a fantastic land. The robber girl!!!! How on earth did I ever forget about her! Her practical and self-interested, but not quite 'bad' character is simply amazing. I've seen modern criticism of 'The Snow Queen' accusing it of being an apologist tale for domestic abuse, encouraging women to pursue relationships with men who mistreat them.
It is possible to read the Snow Queen as the homewrecker, and Gerda as the good wife who must faithfully pursue her errant husband, represented by Kay, but I don't think Andersen intended that, or that the story actually is that. However, I personally like the simplest and most direct reading: that the story is what it says it is, a narrative of bravery and friendship. That the enchantment on Kay is real, and not his fault, and that Gerda's dedication to her quest, and her achievement, is admirable.
I think that one of Andersen's main intentions here is, clearly, to show women as brave, capable, and self-sufficient. Throughout the story, they keep appearing: First, of course, there's Gerda and her quest to rescue her friend.
