Cupid and Psyche vs. The Frog King
These two tales are different for many different reasons. The tale itself is completely different with only a few striking similarities. One similarity I find very clear is the attitude of the princess's. Both are quite selfish and material item obsessed.Once Psyche sees her palace, she doesn't complain at all about not seeing her husband or any one else. The princess in The Frog King is only concerned with herself and what makes her happy. She doesn't intend on keeping her promise to the frog. These stories are inherently different with really only one or two similarities.
