The wolf was the first tamed animal our pet dog, ho helped the ancient hunters. During, the middle-ages farmers cut down the trees and the people took over the woods. Imagine a wolf in survival mode. So the remaining wolves in the woods became evil, cunning, monsters used in our horror stories.
Today, the wolf as a metaphor - one who fools with a veiled purpose of selling, which is eating of sorts. The wolf a horrible, negative nemesis in our cautionary tales --> gloomy, glum, gnarled, graved, grim, groping, gruff, and guilty. The wolf is the bad person we must avoid or manage for our safety.
Young children are not to talk to a stranger that person may be a wolf who may eat them. As in this folktale, a wolf dressed in Granny’s clothing wants to eat the child. What does this say about the Granny - dumb and stupid to let a wolf scare her; or evil because a wolf may be inside Granny's clothing.
HA! Know this —-> Granny is the strong, positive protagonist —> gentle, gallant, genuine, good-willed, generous, genius, good-natured, gorgeous, great, grand, and grateful and a guard.
After having my children and grandchildren, especially a teenage granddaughter, I see the journey to Granny’s house is a personal journey to stay on the path one selects so to become a Granny to offer comfort with tea and cakes. Innocent Red with the help of her ‘would’ cutter is able to become a Granny.
