to notice that Edmund's arc in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is an in some ways perfectly straightforward retelling of Kay's arc in 'The Snow Queen'. In other ways not so straightforward, and Gerda doesn't come into it at all, because Aslan, but the beginning and middle of the fairytale are spot-on.

Like, I want to see Kay's coldness, scorn for childish things, and inability to see beauty, as the gender-flipped mirror of Susan's obsession with "lipstick and nylons". But I think I may be filtering this through modern retellings (eg Kara Dalkey's "The Lady of the Ice Garden").
