A few long years past, she reunites with Ian as an adult and talks about their memories they had together. “He said nothing of his father I didn’t ask” (Strutt 131), the narrator says that his entire visit, he does not mention his Father at all, which does not bother her at all. Maybe because her ex-husband still lives his life the same way he did with her; unfaithful.

In the book How to Read Literature like a Professor by Thomas Foster a lesson the reader is taught to examine texts in order to find additional meaning. In any text one can find symbols to better identify meaning. Literature can be a movie, book, game, or anything that tells a story. One example of a symbol is a friendly beast.

One good example of imagery in the novel “The Scarlet Letter” is in Chapter 4, where Chillingworth comes to the prison to visit Hester Prynne and her baby Pearl. In this chapter, Hester is in a nervous breakdown while Pearl is having painful spasms. Later, Chillingworth comes to visit their cell where he gives both of them medicine to calm them down and be able to have a conversation with Hester. In their conversation, he tells Hester that he’s trying to hunt down Pearl’s father by reading the Scarlet A “on his heart”. Hester promises not to reveal her true husband’s doing, but at the same time thinks doing so might ruin her in the future. The passage thoroughly describes the character’s actions in full detail as if the reader was in the actual scene in the book. It’s very well detailed when it comes to sensory details, such as when it described Chillingworth quietly entering Hester’s cell to see her. Chapter 4’s use of imagery is to represent how Hester and Chillingworth interact with

In literature, the technique of symbolism is used to convey an idea about a subject, person, or place. In the works of Amy Tan and Julia Alvarez, symbolism is influential throughout their stories. The story of ¡Yo! is a great example of how well Julia establishes the symbols of a haunting folklore to a real-life terror. Although the story of ¡Yo! takes place in the United States, it tells the story of a family that escapes from The Dominican Republic during the time of a terrifying wave of dictatorship. The symbol throughout the text is El Cuco. A bogeyman known well amongst Latin parents and children. He used a tool for parents to get their children to behave. The consequences for the children, if not well behaved, are being taken away by El Cuco and never to be seen again. For Yo’s mother, there are a few things being held over her head. Her anxiety and the fear of what will happen if the D.R. police were to find her and her family. Like her children, Yo’s mother can be represented just like the children told the tale of El Cuco. Consumed by the fear of Rafael’s dictatorship, she believes that if not well behaved, she, along with her family—will be taken away and punished for not following the rules. Also living in the United States, she must concern herself with Child Protective Services (CPS), an organization known for taking children from their parents, if neglect/abuse is heavily suspected. Not as harsh as Rafael and his police force, but for a parent like Yo’s
