Symbolism can use an object (like a tree of birds), or art, (like Melinda’s art project or Mr. Freeman's canvas) to represent an abstract idea.

Symbolism is a literary element commonly used by several authors to help represent a bigger picture. It can help the reader relate what the author is talking about to something more well known. In Patrick Henry’s speech, “Speech in the Virginia Convention”, Henry uses symbolism to help the listeners realize the negative actions and effects of Great Britain, and also to make them want to go to war. During the time Henry gave his speech, King George had just recently passed the Stamp Act. While giving the speech, Henry “stood in the vanguard of those calling for united action by all the colonies against British "tyranny"” (Foner & Garraty, 1991, n.p.).

In the Scarlet Letter the author Hawthorne uses a great deal of symbolism, from Pearls name, to the letter A, light, darkness, weeds, and roses. All these ideas go much deeper than the plain surface. Throughout this novel these examples of symbolism will be discussed to a deeper meaning to understand what they really stand for.

America in the 19th century was, as for most of its history, divided sharply between rural and urban environments. Women on farms in Indiana and working in factories in the cities were expected to behave in fairly different manners. But while there lives were different, the struggle for equality became important for both. For so many women in history, being equal was something of value and of importance to them, but every time “equality” was brought up, it was just ignored. In the first document, “Women's Roles in the Late 1900s” talks about what women were expected to do and how their lives were “tied to house and children, endlessly unacknowledged work, little opportunity for outside contact or variety of experience, and little relief from everyday triviality.” It discusses how women were encouraged to do these things and how they had to do them because they were the only ones capable of actually doing these things.

Pablo Neruda was critical of any kind of political or social oppressions. His poem ‘Keeping Quiet’ is a call for introspection for all human beings who have divided themselves on the basis of race, language and nationalities. The poem is presented in the form of an exercise for meditating in silence. In these moments of silence one can break the shackles of discrimination, hatred, violence and create an exotic moment of togetherness. In such inactivity and silence we can feel the strength of humanity.
