What is the beginning paragraph of Snow White?

I'm assuming your referring to the original Snow White folktale? Here is one translation from the Brothers Grimm version:

Once upon a time in the middle of winter, when the flakes of snow were falling like feathers from the sky, a queen sat at a window sewing, and the frame of the window was made of black ebony. And whilst she was sewing and looking out of the window at the snow, she pricked her finger with the needle, and three drops of blood fell upon the snow. And the red looked pretty upon the white snow, and she thought to herself, "Would that I had a child as white as snow, as red as blood, and as black as the wood of the window-frame."

What are the names of the seven dwarfs from the fairy tale Snow White?

The names of the dwarfs from the Disney movie are:

  1. Sneezy
  2. Sleepy
  3. Dopey
  4. Doc
  5. Happy
  6. Bashful
  7. Grumpy

In the original story, they did not have names: No names were assigned to the dwarfs in the story as recorded by the Brothers Grimm, both in their 1812 first edition and in their final 1854 revision.

On October 31st 1912 the story opened as a Broadway play. It was in this play that they first received names. Those names were:

  1. Blick
  2. Flick
  3. Glick
  4. Snick
  5. Plick
  6. Whick
  7. Quee

Disney changed the names for their first animated film in 1937.

  • Dopey: the youngest, sweetest, and silliest of the seven, and the only one to be completely bald and beardless; wears a too large lime green tunic and purple cap.
  • Grumpy: the grouchiest and most curmudgeonly of the group, though even he is supremely devoted to the beautiful Snow White; wears a red tunic, long white hair and beard.
  • Doc: the only one of the dwarfs to wear glasses (so presumably the most intellectual); wears an orange-brown tunic, long white hair and beard.
  • Happy: the most rotund of the dwarfs; wears a brownish two-tone tunic, yellow cap, long white hair and beard.
  • Bashful: evokes his bashful nature through a classic pose of shyness (hands clasped behind back, shoulders slightly raised, eyes upturned); sometimes difficult to distinguish between Sneezy and Sleepy; depicted in purple tunic and magenta cap (on video), as well as long white hair and beard.
  • Sneezy: frequently shown with one finger underneath his nose, as if trying to stifle a sneeze; sometimes difficult to distinguish between Sleepy and Bashful; wears a yellow-brown tunic, long white hair and beard.
  • Sleepy: perhaps the most difficult to differentiate between Sleepy and Bashful, though he wears a perpetually sleepy looking, heavily lidded expression on his face; wears a brownish tunic, green cap, long white hair and beard.

Why is Snow White and water transparent but sometimes ice can be both?

Because snow always scatters light, water never does and inclusions in solid ice can do sometimes.

Many gases including carbon dioxide, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen are soluble in water. For example the solubility of oxygen & nitrogen in water at room temperature (25 degrees C) is 0.0089 g/litre & 0.0138 g/litre. According to Henry's law, gas solubility in water increases as the temperature decreases. Water droplets at very high altitude with low temperature environment have high solubility for gas. Besides, the small water droplets have very high surface area for gas to dissolve.

Hence, water droplets in cloud are saturated with dissolved gases. When the environment temperature decreases to freezing point, gas which is not soluble in snow gets trapped inside and forms tiny bubbles. The size and the distribution of the tiny bubbles are quite uniform due to small droplet sizes and fast freezing rate. Visible light reflected by tiny bubbles gives white colored snow.

Water is transparent because it doesn't absorb or reflect visible light.

The appearance of cloudy ice normally depends on water properties and the method of making the ice. Tiny bubbles trapped in ice will give white color. Ice normally has size much bigger than water droplets in cloud (low surface area to size ratio). In a cube of water, water near its surface will freeze first. Bubbles will move towards the center of the ice and form a cloudy part at the center.

Water which has undergone processes that remove dissolved gases will not become cloudy ice. For example: deaeration by boiling water at 100 degree C. The reason ice cubes you buy in the market, hotels, and bars are clear is that the freezing takes place in a flow of water over a cold surface. Then the minerals and air are continuously washed away and pure ice forms clear ice cubes.

Sometimes, water or ice is blue colored (ocean or iceberg) because it absorbs slightly more of the red-frequency part of visible light (Insignificant Normally).

And from the completely "romantic", non-scientific perspective:Why is snow white…

A nearly perfect, clear ice crystal forms a Snowflake...

As photons rush in to illuminate the Snowflakes faultlessness they are temporarily lost in its beauty as they are bounced around the cold clear universe of miniature ice.

Once inside the Snowflakes temple walls the photons are hopelessly lost, some for an instant and others for an eternity… Either way the photon is humbled by the perfection of its Captor and even those that escape never revile the secrets nor would they miss the opportunity for reentry...

We witness from afar the brilliant dance of the Snowflake and the photon. Is it Chaos? Yes… But from our vantage point the Snowflake reveals its vibration to be only perfection, Pure and White…

What is the author's purpose of Snow White?

A fantasy is just a story to entertain. Brothers Grimm wrote this for two reasons. 1) to entertain and 2) to show that good things happen to good people, and bad things happen to bad people. Now, in the story, since Snow White was a kind person, she was let go by the huntsman who was sent to kill her(good), she was taken in be the dwarfs (good) and got to marry the prince (also good). The queen tried killing killing SW three times, and failed miserably each time (bad), and at the wedding she was forced to dance in red hot iron shoes until she died (also bad).

Short declamation piece about nature?

THE OAK AND THE REEDThe oak one day address the reed:

"To you ungenerous indeed

Has nature been, my humble friend,

With weakness aye obliged to bend.

The smallest bird that flits in air

Is quite too much for you to bear;

The slightest wind that wreathes the lake

Your ever-trembling head does shake.

The while, my towering form

Dares with the mountain top

The solar blaze to stop,

And wrestle with the storm.

What seems to you the blast of death,

To me is but a zephyr's breath.

Beneath my branches head you grown.

That spread for round their friendly bower,

Less suffering would your life have known,

Defended from the tempest's power.

Unhappily you oftenest show

In open air your slender form,

Along the marches wet and low,

That fringe the kingdom of the storm.

To you, declare I must,

Dame Nature seems unjust."

Then modesty replied the reed:

"Your pity, sir, is kind indeed,

But wholly needless for my sake.

The wildest wind that ever blew

Is safe to me compared with you

I bend, indeed, but never break.

Thus far, I own the hurricane

Has beat your sturdy back in vain,

But wait the end."

Just as the word -

The tempest's hollow voice was heard.

The North sent forth her fiercest child,

Dark, jagged, pitiless, and wild.

The oak, erect, endured the blow;

The reed bowed gracefully and low,

But, gathering up its strength once more

In greater fury than before,

The savage blast

Overthrew, at last,

That proud, old sky-encircled head,

Whose feet entwined the empire of the dead!

Are there any Brazilian fairy tales?

Yes, there are... I guess...I'm a Brazilian but can't recall if there are any specific Brazilian fairytales, but there are many kinds of beliefs and stories. I wouldn't know if they could be classified as fairytales. Fairytales often involve royalty, and modern versions usually have a happy ending. But we have some interesting folkloric stories:

Sací-Pererê

He was a little black boy, really really naughty, who can do magic, turn into whirlwind, likes to hide others people's things, play with the horse's hair, scare the people, and plays a lot of other pranks. The description of Saci is that he is a little black boy with a single leg and wearing a kind of red hat (where Saci's magic came from) and is always smoking. According to legend, there is a way to capture the Saci and that is when he is a whirlwind. One must get a bolter and place that on the whirlwind, then capture the Saci and put him in a bottle. A person can then tell him to make things for him.

Boto

The boto is a kind of dolphin which lives in the rivers, but in Brazilian folklore there is also another story. The boto at night becomes a man -- a ladies' man -- who is a good dancer, and sometimes get the women pregnant. He always wears a hat to hide a hole on his head through which he breaths.

Mula-sem-Cabeça

"The Headless-Mule". As the name says it is a headless mule, and on the place where the head was supposed to be there is fire. She kills whoever she finds and her neighs are heard over big distances. The story goes that the Headless-Mule is a cursed woman who had an affair with a priest.
