Tangled Up in Traditional Folktale
GRIN Verlag, 2011 - 16 pages
Essay from the year 2011 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: B, Central Connecticut State University (-), course: Children's Literature, language: English, abstract: The Disney movie Tangled is an adaptation of the Grimm's fairy tale "Rapunzel" and tells the story of a girl who is taken away from her biological parents and raised by a woman who keeps her locked away from the world in a tower. When watching the movie, the question arises whether this version can still be considered a fairy tale. A fairy tale is a short story "of supernatural wonders typically depicting the conflict between good and evil, usually focused on characters of royal birth. Most conclude with [...] a happy marriage. [...] the supernatural is a dominant element, whether it be a magical person or a magical object or an enchantment. Sometimes these stories describe the hero's and heroine's life from childhood through the accomplishment of some great deed and then marriage." (Russell 192).
