Symbol is using an object or action that has a deeper meaning for something more than its literal meaning. The story The Glass Castle contains a lot of different types of symbolic meanings. The symbolic item that I think has a deeper meaning from others is fire. Fire can mean so many different meanings but in the book fire symbolizes chaos, fear and destruction.

I admire how strong and fearless Jeannette is and was as a child. Her earliest memory at three years old is making hot dogs and catching on fire. Even though she screamed out of fear, like any three-year-old would, when she was told she’d be alright she responded “I know…but if I’m not, that’s okay, too”.

Most kids would develop a fear of fire after an incident like that but instead she becomes fascinated with it and finds every excuse just to use fire. Her parents are to thank for this because they are the ones who drove her to be fearless and to have

When looking at the characteristics of a hero, many heroes have a few characteristics in common, bravery, strength (physical or fortitude), and most importantly, they never give up.
