The essay “Tales in Literature” explores the symbolic details in fairy tales. The prominent values in the story “Diamonds and Toads” are the contrasts of good and bad, humility and pride, kindness and meanness expressed by the two daughters and their mother. The heroine being the good-natured child but still is not treated with justice, yet continues to be good, is rewarded in the end. Of the prominent things in the tale, we have the fountain which is used as the setting for the test of character of the two sisters. Other settings could have been used for the test but since the author’s focus was on the characteristics of each child and their responses on the test, the fountain could well be the best setting yet. The younger daughter, going everyday to the fountain, could be understood by this symbolism as getting purified every time she fetches water from it. On the other hand, the older daughter, being sent to the fountain is given the chance for cleansing, a rebirth becoming better. Probably the most prominent motif in the story is the pairing or the number two. There were two daughters, the fairy gave the gifts of rose and a jewel to the younger daughter and a toad and a snake to the older one. The gifts came out by twos whenever the two characters spoke. two roses, two diamonds, two pearls, two toads, and two snakes. Two symbolizes duality, opposition, separation and antagonism which in the analysis of the tale could be related to the fountain which we said earlier represents purification and rebirth, a place of separation from evil or old self.
