A comparison of cinderella versions in the grimm and the traditional french

Illustration by Johnny Gruelle A lonely couple, who wants a child, lives next to a walled garden belonging to an evil witch named Dame Gothel. The wife, experiencing the cravings associated with the arrival of her long-awaited pregnancy, notices some rapunzel or, in most translated-to-English versions [13] of the story, rampiongrowing in the garden and longs for it.

She refuses to eat anything else and gets sick, and the husband begins to fear for her life. One night, her husband breaks into the garden to get some for her. She makes a salad out of it and greedily eats it. It tastes so good that she longs for more.

So her husband goes to get some more for her. As he scales the wall to return home, Dame Gothel catches him and accuses him of theft. He begs for mercy, and she agrees to be lenient, and allows him to take all the rapunzel he wants, on condition that the baby be given to her when it's born.

When his wife has a baby girl, Dame Gothel takes her to raise as her own and names her Rapunzel after the plant her mother craved. She grows up to be the most beautiful child in the world with long golden hair.

When she turns twelve, Dame Gothel locks her up inside a tower in the middle of the woods, with neither stairs nor a door, and only one room and one window.

In order to visit Rapunzel, Dame Gothel stands beneath the tower and calls out: Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair, so that I may climb thy golden stair. One day, a prince rides through the forest and hears Rapunzel singing from the tower. Entranced by her ethereal voice, he searches for her and discovers the tower, but is naturally unable to enter it.

He returns often, listening to her beautiful singing, and one day sees Dame Gothel visit, and thus learns how to gain access to Rapunzel. When Dame Gothel leaves, he bids Rapunzel let her hair down. When she does so, he climbs up and they fall in love.

He eventually asks her to marry him, which she agrees to. Together they plan a means of escape, wherein he will come each night thus avoiding Dame Gothel who visits her by dayand bring Rapunzel a piece of silkwhich she will gradually weave into a ladder.

Before the plan can come to fruition, however, she foolishly gives him away. In the first edition of Grimm's Fairy Talesshe innocently says that her dress is growing tighter around her waist hinting pregnancy ; in the second edition, she asks Dame Gothel in a moment of forgetfulness why it is easier for her to draw up the prince than her.

When the prince calls that night, Dame Gothel lets the severed hair down to haul him up. To his horror, he finds himself staring at her instead of Rapunzel, who is nowhere to be found.

When she tells him in a jealous rage that he will never see Rapunzel again, he leaps from the tower and lands on some thorns, which blind him.

For months, he wanders through the wastelands of the country and eventually comes to the wilderness where Rapunzel now lives with the twins she has given birth to, a boy and a girl. One day, as she sings, he hears her voice again, and they are reunited.

When they fall into each other's arms, her tears immediately restore his sight. He leads her and their twins to his kingdom, where they live happily ever after. In some versions of the story, Rapunzel's hair magically grows back after the prince touches it.

Another version of the story ends with the revelation that Dame Gothel had untied Rapunzel's hair after the prince leapt from the tower, and it slipped from her hands and landed far below, leaving her trapped in the tower. The seemingly uneven bargain with which "Rapunzel" opens is a common trope in fairy tales which is replicated in " Jack and the Beanstalk ", Jack trades a cow for beans, and in " Beauty and the Beast ", Beauty comes to the Beast in return for a rose.All Sorts.
