and Neha Chisty Tone of Rumpelstiltskin What was the theme? Imagery Irony Figurative Language Symbolism AP Stem Questions The tone presented in Rumpelstiltskin was that of suspense. The Grimm brothers keep the audience on their toes by never revealing to much about the story at any point of time. The themes in this short story are those of power and greed.

Finding humility when surrounded by greed. "Thereupon he himself locked up the room, and left her in it alone. So there sat the poor miller's daughter, and for the life of her could not tell what to do, she had no idea how straw could be spun into gold, and she grew more and more frightened, until at last she began to weep.
But all at once the door opened, and in came a little man,..." Straw - Poverty
Gold - Wealth
Rumpelstiltskin - Devil; evil
King - Greed
Baby - Innocence
Miller's Daughter/ Queen - Ignorance (the state of being uninformed) "A year after, she brought a beautiful child into the world, and she never gave a thought to the manikin. But suddenly he came into her room, and said, "Now give me what you promised."
Prior to Rumpelstiltskin arriving again, the audience is aware that he will soon return. Axel Olrik’s Laws of Epic Narrative
The Law of Repetition-We see this in the repeating of the straw being spun into gold three times and in the guessing of his name.
The Law of Three-Refers also to the law above, but there are always three chances or events.
The Law of Two to a Scene-Each scene in the story only has two characters directly involved.
The Law of Patterning-The scenes for the straw spinning and name guessing are almost completely the same in the way they are told and patterned. The passage is an appeal for...

The principal contrast employed by the passage is between...

The tone throughout the passage is best described as one of Summary The Brothers Grimm use imagery to develop the start of a motif. The audience can empathize with the miller's daughter and almost be part of the vivid description of her struggle. Conflict Rich vs. Poor - The king makes this conflict clear when he take the Miller's daughter and forces her into spinning gold

Devil vs. Self - Rumpelstiltskin is made to represent evil and the Miller's Daughter is troubled between accepting his help or her fate which ich is her death. This story is your not so typical fairy tale. It begins when the poor miller who enjoyed boasting about every aspect of his life. His boasting leads him to the king who upon hearing about the miller's daughter, takes sudden interest.The miller tells of how his daughter can spin measly straw into luxurious gold. By demand of the king, the miller sells off his beautiful daughter to the young greedy king perhaps in hopes for a better life for his daughter and of course himself. . The king forbade the daughter to leave the castle that night until warning her, "Now set to work, and if by to-morrow morning early you have not spun this straw into gold during the night, you must die.". The princess unable to spin gold cried till a little man heard her plea and responds by asking "Good evening, mistress miller, why are you crying so?". When the daughter responds by explaining her situation, the little man took that to his own advantage and asked the daughter for one thing in in return. This continued for another two nights; the king brought more straw and the daughter gave up something else. On the third night, the king's greed grew and he soon offered the miller's daughter to become his queen if she spun him more gold. The daughter did not have anything to give the little man so she she accepted his offer for him to get her first child. And as if a twist of fate had occurred, the now queen had a child and Rumpelstiltskin appeared to get what was promised a year back. Now realizing how important her child was to her, the queen offered him riches but with no avail took another offer. Rumpelstiltskin offered her a riddle stating, "I will give you three days, time,...if by that time you find out my name, then shall you keep your child.". The queen sent servants out to go find out his name. Each day the servants returned with no right answers. As if by a stroke of luck, a servant returned with an answer. He acknowledged that had seen a ridiculous looking man jumping and shouting,
'To-day I bake, to-morrow brew,
the next I'll have the young queen's child.
Ha, glad am I that no one knew
that Rumpelstiltskin I am styled.'
Rumpelstiltskin came back to the queen each day and by the third day hoping for the child, he requested an anwer. The queen replied that his name must surely be Rumpelstiltskin. In rage, Rumpelstiltskin stomped his right leg so deep that his whole leg went in then persisted to pull his left leg so hard that he tore himself into two. Setting The short story was set in olden times when a king could rule a village. The places described were the KIng's palace, the room in which the miller's daughter "made gold", and Rumpelstiltskin's home in the woods where he stayed at night. Original vs.Fairytale Compared to the original the fairytale only had minor discrepancies. The ending in the original has Rumpelstiltskin pulling off one of his legs whereas in the fairytale Rumpelstiltskin falls into an endless chasm.
