Reply to: More than you ever wanted to know about Rapunzel by Miranda
Giambattista Basile's version of Rapunzel was titled "Parsley", not "Pentamerone". "Pentamerone" was the title of her collection of fairy tales.

"Parsley" is the English translation. "Pentamerone" was translated into English in 1847 by John Edward Taylor. The original language was a Neapolitan dialect.

Sorry it took awhile for me to post this correction. I just re-visited SurLaLune tonight (this morning?) and saw that they had the English translation of Basile's work.
