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.
