Symbolism in Writing
  • Symbolism is used to provide meaning to the
    writing beyond what is actually being described
  • Plot and action are one level in the story,
    symbolism is another level

8
Symbolism in Writing
  • The theme is represented on a physical level
  • Example A storm occurring when there is a
    conflict or high emotions
  • Example Transition from day to night might
    move from goodness to evil

Examples from Literature
  • Lord of the Flies
  • Ralph with his conch shell represents order and
    democracy, while Jack symbolizes savagery and
    anarchy. The island itself symbolizes the world
    in which we live, and the actions of the
    characters are symbolic of the way people conduct
    their lives

10
Examples from Literature
  • Harry Potter
  • Could be seen as containing a lot of symbolism,
    although there are as many interpretations as
    there are creatures in the books. One clear
    symbol is a commonly used onethe use of the
    snake to represent evil. It is no coincidence
    that the symbol of Slytherin House is a serpent.
