Fairy Tale Background:
Rapunzel is a fairy tale, and the best known version is that of the Brothers
Grimm. In the tale, a witch or enchantress separates
Rapunzel from her parents and puts her away in a room at the
top of a tower in a remote part of a forest. The tower
has no door or stairs and only a window. The witch would climb
Rapunzel's long braid of golden hair to visit her. The witch
would call out to Rapunzel saying: Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let
down your hair, so that I may climb the golden stair. One
day a prince hears Rapunzel's beautiful singing voice and wants to
meet her. He secretly observes how the witch is able to visit
Rapunzel in the tower. They meet, fall in love and
agree to marry. The wicked witch attempts to separate them, but
eventually they reunite, and live happily ever after.
