A Tormented Toad
Once upon a time, a little frog was trapped in the bottom of a well for 100 years, torn between returning to his former state of royalty, or remaining a lowly frog; but upon closer inspection, this fairy tale offers more than the moans of a tormented toad. It gives readers insight to a common fear that many Christians are subjected to. Within the poem “The Frog Prince,” Stevie Smith uses the word “disenchanted” to refer to humans being freed from their mortal bodies and moving….
‘A fairytale is a narrative form which expresses a society’s collective concern about some aspect of growing up and expresses these concerns at the level of magical thought’ (Crago, 2003, 8).
When the word fairytale comes to mind, many people automatically think about falling in love, big castles and houses made of sweets, happily ever after endings, magic, enchantments and wish-fulfillment. I was one of those people. I was shocked when I studied fairytales more in depth, realising that many fairytales….
Unique names and titles contribute greatly to the success of fairytales. In classic fairytales, readers identify the protagonist as an icon, rather than a requisite to push the plot. Timeless “appellations,” such as “Cinderella,” “The Little Red Ridinghood,” “Snow White,” “Blue Beard,” etc. inheritably connect to public impression.

The Effect of Fairy Tales in a Child’s Life
In the essay “The Uses of Enchantment,” Bruno Bettelheim expresses the idea that fairy tales display the struggles of life in the simplest ways, in which there is generally a humble hero who triumphs over an evil villain. By clearly presenting the hero and the villain, children are able to easily comprehend the essential idea of good and evil, but also adopt valuable character traits that the hero possesses, such as perseverance and positivity.
