In the novel Candide written by Voltaire, one of the main motifs is the garden. It has been mentioned multiple times throughout the book. The first garden was the Castle of baron Thunder-Ten- Tronckh, there is the garden of Eldorado, and Candide's final garden. As a main motif, the garden symbolizes people's lives and how they must nurture them to have a good outcome. The garden is used cleverly throughout the novel to convey an optimistic moral about the importance of gardens' cultivation that determines the life and fate of the characters.
Once these characters are in the woods working on accomplishing their goals, they each face challenges that set them back. For example, Red is stopped by the wolf and later eaten, Jack is attacked by the giant, Cinderella is internally struggling with how to tell the prince who she truly is, and the Baker and his wife lose the cow. These challenges they face throughout their journey through the “woods”, all symbolize the obstacles we face everyday when we are working towards our ambitions. To go along with the setbacks, we also watch Red, Cinderella, and the Baker and his wife get lost in the “woods”. This issue of getting lost correlates with the idea that we get distracted or lost along the way while trying to achieve what we wish for.
For most people nature is viewed as a place of serenity and peace. The restorative power of nature comforts us.

To the Elizabethan’s, nature would be seen as a positive force for entertainment, rest, and renewal.
In our culture, people get wrapped up in the major events in our life, the events that are planned, that are believed to hold our true happiness. Through Mary Oliver’s sobering words and structure in The Place I Want To Get Back To she suggests that true fulfilment is in small spontaneous moments that cannot be repeated, planned, or expected. She believes those are the moments that hold the most gratitude. By the use of descriptive language to describe the setting, Mary Oliver begins by implying that the poem is taking place in a forest without directly saying so.

Peace and diversity are woven together as the threads of a tapestry; together giving us a picture of shalom, the way God designed the universe to be.
