    One thought on “Rapunzel

    1. Julia on said:

      A beautifully unique yet quite interesting retelling of Rapunzel that holds itself against all other variations. Although the book does a wonderful job in retelling the much older version of the story that I had read before there was a bit of a newer element in which the protagonist was only a pre-teen when she was locked up in her tower instead of being raised in the tower since the day after her arrival in the world. What also intrigued me the most was the introduction bit in the book that was [...]

      Faithful retelling of the Brothers Grimm tale. Pictures are all good. Some are quite gorgeous.

      I had forgotten how scandalous the real story of Rapunzel was! This version is not all-that-beautifully retold but Oh! the illustrations are gorgeous!

      “Rapunzel,” retold and illustrated by Alix Berenzy, is a fairly straightforward, traditional retelling of the story of the girl with the golden locks, kept in a tower by an evil jailer (in this retelling, a fairy), and saved from her solitude by a handsome prince. The thing that makes this 1995 picture book stand out is the amazing illustrations created with colored pencil and gouache on black paper. Berenzy captures the facial expressions of the characters, as well as the shadows and light [...]

      This is the closest I read for the version of the Brothers Grimm. This must be based on Friedrich Schultz's "Rapunzel," published in Germany one hundred years later, faithfully follows La Force's plot but Schultz makes to the story is that the fairy is portrayed with sympathy. In this version, Mother Gothel (a generic name for a godmother) is a fairy instead of a witch. she doesn't throw the prince from the tower — he leaps himself, in a fit of despair. The oral version of "Rapunzel" collected [...]

      This version was the only one I've read that explained that rapunzel is a kind of lettuce. Suddenly her name makes so much more sense!

      I enjoyed this version immensely. The artwork was original and different. However, the story was the same as all the rest.
