In the story, they never mention the parents again. While the Disney version Rapunzel is stolen by a witch from her parents who are royalty and are desperately looking for their daughter. In the Grimm version there is a prince who owns the lands around and in the Disney he is a thief that is wanted. While reading the story it mentions that the prince hears her singing and instantly falls in love with her voice. While in the film there is no prince but a thief named Flynn Rider who steals the princess crown and escapes to where he finds the tower.
Silber. Its main points focused on the antagonist mother-daughter dynamics as they appear in fairy tales. I was particularly interested to discover the role of the wicked stepmother in the heroine’s path toward “femininity” (Fisher and Silber 123). In this source, the authors discus that in the absence of the heroine’s true and righteous mother, her pathological stepmother is “the only available, living ‘model’ of feminine maturity” (124). And since the stepmother was put under severe social criticism, the heroine’s ‘reaction’ was to associate herself with “the passive, feminine identity of the first queen, avoiding any identification with the active principle embodied in the characterization of the bad mother/witch” (124).

The Child Ballad No. 35, “Allison Gross,” in contrast, fairly differs from both ballads I have discussed so far. Whereas “The Marriage of Sir Gawain” and “Kemp Owyne” are, much like most fairy tales, named after the heroes of the ballad, the name “Allison Gross” comes from the story 's villain: the evil witch. Besides, this ballad does not treat of a stepmother 's relationship to and behavior towards their stepchildren, but rather broaches the issue of “[t]he ugliest witch i’ the north country” (“Allison Gross” l. 2) who punishes her beloved for rejecting her. Nonetheless, there are a number of fairy tale elements to be found in this ballad as well.
Cinderella’s was very inhumane to her they basically treated her like an washed up old doormat. One day their prince was to have a ceremony to find a wife all the women got invited but Cinderella’s stepmother, the meanest on the face of the earth, deemed poor Cinderella not to attend saying “You Cinderella?” she said, “You’re all covered with dust and dirt, and you want to go to the festival?. You have neither clothes nor shoes, and yet you want to dance!”(“Cinderella”) Cinderella obviously wept, especially knowing that her
One of today’s dystopian fairytales is called Cinder. It is a remake of classic Cinderella fairytale, and here the main character is a cyborg. It begins with Cinder getting rid of his own foot, which is too small. It is interesting that in the original story, her foot is the key for her marriage to the prince. So this way, getting rid of the foot can be considered as a feminist act, and it kind of predicts that this will not be a love story.

Many poets during Shakespeare’s time wrote traditional blazon sonnets, ones that compared women to the most wondrous things life has to offer; gems, jewels, plants, and stars. Such beautiful comparisons were made and the women appeared so divine but they were unrealistic. Women had become a collection of objects rather than human, but Shakespeare shed some light on the matter at hand and presented a new way of thinking. In Shakespeare’s My Mistress’ Eyes, he purposefully contradicts the typical blazon tradition, uses enjambment, end-stop, and rhyme schemes to create a sonnet which serves as a statement that disowns the societal views on women.
