A red rose has become a symbol for romance. Skulls a symbol of death. Four-leafed clovers have come to represent goodluck due to their rarity. Symbols are all over the place and have been for a long time, they are so ingrained within our everyday life that we miss a majority of them. They’re present in ads, on tv, even on the doors to the toilet.
Symbolism in general is the building blocks to all sources of literature and can shape a piece of writing in many ways. Symbols in general can portray what something or someone represents, giving a deeper and metaphorical meaning to a symbol. Symbolism is often used within poetry, literature, music, or even art. This is how an author conveys a different meaning to the audience. For example artists may use the color “red” not only because of the color theory, but to convey love, passion, and maybe even health.
Myrtle’s red lips represent her haughty and bold personality, but red also represent blood and death. Such references can connect to future events such as Myrtle’s death. Other colors such as the grey ash heap can portray a gloomy, bleak, and depressing mood. Finally, the colors allow for a unique and elaborate development of the characters that wouldn't be achieved through other descriptions. This development is shown through Gatsby.
All in all, Daisy's recklessness started the events that caused great suffering, destruction and distress of many characters. Jay Gatsby's death affected the plot of the novel because it allowed the audience to recognize one of the true meanings of Fitzgerald's work. Gatsby's death represents the corruption of the American dream. Myrtle Wilson's and Jay Gatsby's death helps to illuminate the meaning of the work as a
The Hunger Games story, Catching Fire, is connected to many themes and had lots of well thought-out characters, foreshadowing and symbols. One of the most important symbols in the story was the mocking jay. The Mocking Jay is used to show rebellion, survival and hope which are all major themes in Catching Fire. As well as being a symbol for rebellion, it also foreshadowed that District 13 may actually still be alive. After the war between the Districts and the Capitol, it was rumored that the Capitol destroyed district 13.

Also in the film The Sixth Sense, uses the color archetype of Red (red carpet, red balloon, red dress), symbolizing or leading an event to a sinful and disordered.

Donne is damned with the possibility of burning in hell with his sins being odious if not equal to that of “serpents, lecherous goats, and poisonous mineral. As Bearing recites “If poisonous minerals, and if that tree” the poem is projected on her, as she lectures her students about John Donne. Edson uses this device to convey intertextuality that promotes a number of impressions to the audience; that Donne’s poetry is found within Bearings character, it reflects not only on Vivian but Donne too. Edson demonstrates a bias towards intellects and wit over the emotions and poeticism of Donne’s purpose, insisting that the “Christian doctrine assures that no sinner is denied forgiveness” Alluding to one’s moral and ethical behaviours, thus enhancing our understanding one the principle of the human nature. It also contradictory to Donne’s assertion that serpents, lecherous goats, and poisonous minerals have unequal sins if “no sinner is denied forgiveness”.
Rationale: According to English B higher, I studied Fitzgerald’s novel “The Great Gatsby”. In order to establish my interpretation of the novel, I decided to write a letter as my written assignment. The task requires to depict the theme of the novel which is the noble deterioration in the upper class society. A letter would be the best approach, specifically for a character like Nick Carraway who showed his feelings regarding Daisy’s act to run away from Eat Egg during Gatsby’s funeral. I used persuasion in the method of asking question in the text in order to make Daisy feel sorry for herself from what she have done regarding her actions.
The Cromwell College very rightly claimed “Amir defined himself by his guilt”. Amir’s life was ruled by his guilt and all the decisions taken by him were somehow influenced by this guilt. Hosseini too writes in regard to Amir that “I became what I am today at the age of twelve”. This shows that Amir is driven by his guilt and that makes a large part of his life. Throughout the novel Amir’s guilty conscience plays a pivotal role in the atonement of sins committed in the past and the choices made by him were a make or break in his quest for redemption.

Hello, I am Connor Love. I am writing this letter as a soon to be former student of Katy Leuschen 's "Waves of Change" writing 111 class. The first semester of my collegiate career has taught me many valuable lessons, from learning how to better succeed academically to how to deal with the flu without my mother. The lessons I have learned in writing class have not only helped my writing abilities grow, but also have helped me improve in other aspects of my life. During "Waves of Change" I learned how to revise my work, more importantly, that uncertainty during the writing process is normal, and revise my thinking.
I look back at all the different forms I’ll be writing and how much advancement I’ve have come too. The way I was writing before and after has really upgraded. I would see my work before and after and now am really shocked to see how much I’ve changed. Starting from the very first days in the class doing pre-writing journals, then moving to bigger assignments like doing different essays like the Memoir and analyzing Rhetorical Analysis were a drastic change. Learning certain chapters and lessons my fellow classmates taught us really helped, for example learning
“Theodor Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, influenced nearly every living American who ever learned to read(Porter William. ).” Theodor’s books have introduced millions of children into the joy of reading.

Now and again it would be stories that were passed on from her adolescence and different times she would get a book, for example, the three little pigs and a plenty of other youngsters ' books, to read loudly as I nodded off. Since I reflect upon it, there was almost always a good to the story, whether it was trustworthiness, dependability, or obligation. There was always a decent value to take from the story, which has directly produced results in the individual that I see myself as to be today. As I became older, the books got more immersed, particularly when I went to class. From the very first day I ever went to class, till the last day of high school, and now into college there has not been one day that I haven 't needed to read something.
