Germanic folktales have fallen out of orality and currently exist predominantly in literary texts. This thesis explores how traditional oral storytellers can meaningfully revive these stories through performance. The efficacy of hermeneutics as a methodology in bringing a written text back to orality will be examined and applied to the fairytale Rapunzel.
