Aurélie Pfauwadel invites us to find an unknown Snow white. Is it possible that the beauty of the daughter is, first and foremost, the sin of the mother? Snow White is a pure ideal image for a mother who dreams of the beauty of her daughter against her window, rather than dreaming herself, in the arms of a man. Could Snow White go beyond her mortal beauty? For the two women, mother and daughter, this beauty- symptom will be a tragedy. Beyond the Oedipal rivalry, embodied by the witch, Aurélie Pfauwadel leads us further than Oedipus, giving its value to the two maternal figures with whom Snow White has to deal.
Aurélie Pfauwadel is psychoanalyst in Paris, a member of the ECF and the WAP. She is a member of the Organization of the 44th Conference of the ECF Committee.
