The symbol of the tulips contributes to my thesis by describing Serena’s flowers as sex organs, but they will be in vain since Serena Joy negligent about their fruits. The tulips are parallel to the handmaids because they are both are fertile and covered in red. As can be seen in Chapter 6, Offred claims, “The red of the tulips in Serena Joy’s garden, towards the base of the flowers where they are beginning to heal. Each thing is valid and really there” (Atwood 40). In other words, Offred is saying red tulips are most strongly associated with true love, while tulips to Serena Joy represents false love.
Seeming sweet as his name, Janie still remains cautious with him, being left beautiful, rich, and single. Attempting to treat him ruthless, she could not resist her smiles and laughter whenever he came, his presence was a pure sense of delight to her. She concluded that “He could be a bee to a blossom - a pear tree blossom in the spring,” (127). Once more, Janie is given a chance to achieve her desired horizon with a man who has been what her previous husbands had not, sincerely considerate. “You got de keys to de kingdom.”
From this, it can be assumed that the tree shows Janie’s youth. It can be inferred that the pear tree also symbolizes Janie’s want for love because of how she compares herself to it. Later on in the novel, Janie realizes that she can’t have her youth if she wants a future with Joe. “Janie pulled back a long time because he did not represent sun-up and pollen and blooming trees, but he spoke for far horizon” (Hurston 29) Here, the horizon symbolizes Janie’s future and the pear tree represents her youth.
This means that when love comes from looks it is more than likely gonna fail love comes from inside and shows actually how care for that person. Another instance in the play that love comes into effect is at the beginning really one girl likes a guy but he loves her best friend like in real life in most cases she never gets a chance “the course of true love never did run smooth(). In the play love does not run smoothly it keeps from relationships forming all because of a flower.
An example of compassion in this novel is Little Bee’s love for Sarah and Charlie. Sarah has done so much to help Little Bee including cutting off her own finger to save Little Bee’s Life. Sarah’s sympathy toward Little Bee caused her to form a sort of compassion for Sarah. Little Bee loves Charlie as a younger brother and acts as a mother figure to him when sarah is unable to.

In the Brother’s Grimm version, Aschenputtel is not a sad, depressed maid that hates life. Instead, she “...sorts everything out herself, and considering that her pragmatism involves a magic tree [and] some enchanted birds... its seems that she isn’t actually an emotionally neglected kitchen maid, but a talented witch” (5). That’s right, a magic tree and birds. Rather than having a fairy godmother that sings to turn a pumpkin into a carriage, when her father goes on a business trip, Aschenputtel “asks for a simple twig” (5).
but it also represents the love and compassion the sales lady shares with him. The orange allows him to make his girl happy. It allows him to have his special moment. “ I took my girls hand, In mine for two blocks, Then released it to let, Her unwrap the chocolate”. (Lines 47-50, Soto).
The pear tree vision is Janie’s own view of how a good marriage should be and how the world should feel when you’re with your true love: She saw a dust-bearing bee sink into the sanctum of a bloom; the thousand sister-calyxes arch to meet the love embrace and the ecstatic shiver of the tree from root to tiniest branch creaming in every blossom and frothing with delight. So this was a marriage! (Hurston 11) When Janie first met Joe Starks, Janie felt a bit of hope return to her since her dream of love died when she married Logan.
“This porridge is too hot, this porridge is too cold, but this porridge is just right!” Recognize this quote from Goldilocks and the Three Bears?
