In literature, color sets the stage for emotion. Although often overlooked, the symbolism associated with color represents the other characters or moods of the story. A story by Karen Russell, “Haunting Olivia” tells the tale of two brothers, Timothy and Wallow, looking for the body of their younger sister, Olivia, who met her death at sea. From marina misbehavior to Glow Worm Grotto, their journey is flooded with colors that represent their circumstances. Symbolism with color fills the story, and the author’s particular use of pink goggles, cerulean eyes and blue fish showcases the boys’ feelings towards their sister, as well as aspects of Olivia herself.

Reminders occur, such as when Geraldine while fishing with Judge Antone Bazil Coutts catches the same turtle she had previously caught while fishing with her past lover Roman. Another working domino is music, and Moshum’s brother Shamengwa’s capacity for music carrying forward to save Corwin Peace from the implications of his origins. The novel repeats the past and the intangible power of it to draw the characters to repeat what they do or how they felt. For the white community, the marginalization and displacement of hate for the Native American’s residing in the reservation is yet another repetition of past influence carried forward. There is no reason needed to associate current hatred with them; nevertheless, it carries forward and Mosshum and his 3 other Native American friends entering the house is enough justification to turn them into scapegoats for the whites’ hatred.
In the third stanza, the speaker is talking about ‘good men, the last wave by, cry bright’ which suggesting with ‘last wave by’ could be refer to the ocean or sea where a good wave comes in and crashes upon shore then dying off and taken away.
