Scientists and researchers have dedicated a lot of time in order to seek the answer on how colors can affect the brain and the process taken when seeing certain colors. In many situations authors use colors and pictures to help readers create an image, but in some cases writers use color to help understand and symbolize the deeper meanings that lie within the novel. The Grapes of Wrath, written by John Steinbeck is a novel written in the 1930s explaining the lives of migrant farmers trying to survive the Dust Bowl and the responsibilities that come along with surviving, where the author uses color theories to help readers understand. Many colors can be used to show meaning, although Steinbeck analyzes the color red throughout the novel as a crucial aspect to illustrate a deeper meaning. In The Grapes of Wrath, Steinbeck uses the color red to symbolize the struggle, blood being both life and death, and characteristics within the lives of migrant farmers to not only paint a picture, but to show a deeper understanding of the despair in their lives.
Color is a huge part of how people view different emotions and feelings. For an example, when people see the color black, they may feel darkness and loneliness.

Without knowing this information you have been exposed to color symbolism. The red face of this character represents his anger. Similarly, the green face could represent greed or maybe envy.
The Stranger, written by Albert Camus, It follows the story of our tragic hero, Meursault, shortly after his mother dies through the events that lead to him being sentenced to death. Camus uses the motif of weather to express Meursault’s emotions. The Stranger shows how even when a person does not explicitly express emotion they are shown in some way. How emotions are expressed is a window to a person's personality. I will first discuss how Meursault appears emotionless, than how Camus uses the motif of weather to express Meursault’s emotions for him and lastly what impact this makes.
It suggests that Clare is the one that initiates the physical relationship, while Irene tries to suppress her initial attraction for Clare. Irene’s descriptions of Clare are always related to the color of red, which can be used to symbolize lust and temptation, which is seen throughout the novel. One very important theme is attachment.

In “The Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst, the color red symbolizes uncertainty of how life will play out. It was neither autumn nor summer, the time in which death was prominent. The garden was stained brown, and the bleeding tree arose from the ground, intimidating the atmosphere.

The book Of Mice and Men has many colors that represent it but i think that red stood out the most. I think red represents the book Of Mice and Men because when reading the book I felt rage from how they were treating Lennie, I felt leadership in George, and I felt jealousy in Curley. In the book George told of the old times when he used to take advantage of Lennie by tricking him into doing things.
In the story " The Scarlet Ibis" James Hurst shows images of red and expresses that every choice we make has a consequence and its either good or bad. The first place he shows images of red is when doodle and brother went up to the barn loft and saw the coffin. "Daddy had Mr. Heath, the carpenter, build a little mahogany coffin for him". Mahogany is a shade of reddish brown. It shows how death can change the mood of the story.
