This version of The Little Mermaid was first published in 1837 by Hans Christian Andersen and tells the tale of a young mermaid who wants nothing more in life than to live her life on land with mortals and fall in love. As we learn, mermaids live up to 300 years, but the life of a mortal is very short. Still, the Little Mermaid gives up her tongue (by literally cutting it out) and endures the pain and blood of having legs formed from her tail. Every step she takes is brutally painful and bloody, but she endures because this is the life she so longed for. Unfortunately, the Prince she comes across and rescues takes her into his life as only a friend and remembers a different woman, though similar to her, who was his true rescuer. He is reunited with this woman, and though the mermaid gets a chance to get revenge and continue to live as a mortal, she is consumed by her choice and dies instead, leaving the Prince to lead a happy life with his new bride.
The Little Mermaid was republished numerous times in its history, eventually becoming a much different story altogether by the writers at Disney. An important message is lost in the retelling; however, as the mermaid is never given the same redemption. As in this original tale, she takes the burden unto herself and, instead of the death she believed would occur, is taken into a beautiful spiritual realm of peace where her immortal soul can be at rest.
