Abstract: A womb,as a classic image in the space of fairy tale,mainly exhibits the "devouring"theme in the text of fairy tale,which contains the philosophical thought on "in"and "out". The process from entry into and leaving the womb symbolizes the test of personality,by which the protagonists in the fairy tale perfect their selfpersonality. Meanwhile,this process is bound to cause the separation anxiety as a baby leaves his maternal body,which is displayed by means of the protagonists’ bulimia or being swallowed in most cases. After improving their self-personality and conquering their early separation anxiety,the protagonists also realize the remodeling of their personality,eventually acquiring their new birth.
