From Hair to Eternity: The Un-be-weave-able Adventures of Rapunzel

About the Story

From Hair to Eternity: The Un-be-weave-able Adventures of Rapunzel Jacob Grimm (1785-1863) and his brother Wilhelm Grimm (1786-1859) grew up fascinated with folklore and dedicated their lives to collecting and recording traditional folk stories, particularly German and Scandinavian tales. “Rapunzel” is a German fairy tale that was first published by the Brothers Grimm in their 1812 collection Children’s and Household Tales. The origin of the story is unknown, but the Brothers Grimm version is thought to be influenced by the 1698 French fairy tale “Persinette” and the 1634 Italian fairy tale “Parsley” (“Petrosinella”) by Giambattista Basile. In “Parsley,” a pregnant woman craving parsley is caught stealing the herb from an ogress’s garden and is forced to give her baby to the ogress. Other famous tales collected by the Brothers Grimm include “Snow White,” “Rumpelstiltskin,” “Hansel and Gretel,” and “Cinderella.”
