In the poem, Wright uses two main specific symbols to make readers to understand the poem. The first symbol is the windowless first-floor copy room. “Windowless” illustrates unsafety and vulnerability of the room. It implies how easily the room can be affected by the wind or tornado.

As I compose this, I sit under a tarp as the rain pours around me turning the soil to mud. It doesn’t rain often this time of the year but when it does rain, it is best to run for cover. Currently, I am working at the Makauwahi Cave Reserve on the island of Kauai in the Hawaiian Island chain. I landed at the airport with fellow classmate Melissa Rudie. It became clear as soon as we landed that we were here for a new, challenging experience.
Before renting her apartment on 116th street, Lutie finds herself struggling to read an advertisement for an apartment because it is so windy. Other people on the street are shivering in their flimsy coats trying to offer the "least possible exposed surface to its violent assault" (1). If the pronoun "its" refers to the howling wind, then the words "violent assault" invoke the trait of fear and relentlessness to the wind. Also, personifying the wind as assaulting makes the wind seem violating and unwanted. On the other hand, if "it's" pertains to the street, or in general Harlem, then those on the street want the least amount of exposure to the harshness that it instills in the people living there.

In the beginning of the book Holden hints that he went through unfortunate events in this life. It can be foreshadowed that something bad has happened around Christmas and that Holden is getting help from some sort of institution. Holden came off to me as laid back and irresponsible, he was the fencing team captain but left all the equipment’s in the subway. Holden also did not seem to care about anything. I noticed that he thinks something in his head but does the opposite.
reality is Mr. Meeker 's death. For instance " Having Father gone was strange. The tavern seemed cold and empty, the way it is when you wake up at night and realize that the fires have gone out."

Weather Representing Emotions Normally weather and emotions are not associated, but throughout the novel The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald makes multiple references comparing the feelings of Jay Gatsby to the weather outside. He uses rain to represent the times of sadness or awkward situations. When those moods uplifted the clouds would break, and the sun would shine. Other times he would use heat to represent times of anger, or tension. The weather always corresponded with the feelings and emotions that Jay Gatsby was feeling at that time, especially during the hotel fight between him and Tom Buchanan, tea time with Daisy Buchanan, and at the end of the book the season corresponds with the death of Gatsby.
