EDUCATION AND COMPARATIVE LITERATURE: CLASSICAL AND MODERN FEMININE PORTRAITS - RAPUNZEL FROM THE GRIMM BROTHERS TO DISNEY’S FILM ADAPTATION

Luis Miguel Cardoso, Daniela Maravilha

Abstract


This paper portrays evolution: in education, literature, cinema, as well as in its characters. The narratives follow the social evolutions, obtaining the characteristics of the different times and, consequently, there is a change in the characterization of the characters. To validate this evolution, a comparison is made between Rapunzel of the Grimm Brothers and Rapunzel of Tangled. The most striking evolution in recent years is in relation to the profile of the women and their stereotypes. We can observe this evolution from the adaptations of the traditional tales (like the tales of the Grimm Brothers) that become great and popular narratives of the present times. The woman's profile is represented by the figure of the princess, which is something that marks the life of children very much, since they appear as a model to follow (especially for girls, as a model of femininity). They transmit messages and pass values, through their actions and from the whole narrative. Having said this, it is important that those who adapt stories, such as those who create them, who are aware of the current situation and who try to convey the right messages with the right discourses. Hence there is a great discrepancy between the princesses of the Classical Age and the princesses of the Modern Age, but they maintain key issues to be studied in Education and Comparative Literature.
