In the novel "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" by L. Frank Baum color is used to play a huge role and symbolize many things. One role color plays in the novel is how it is used to separate the different countries/factions. One thing color symbolizes in the novel is The Yellow Brick Road and the meaning behind it. Another thing color symbolizes in the novel is Emerald City and the meaning behind it. Baum uses color throughout the entire novel to play key roles and symbolize major poeple places and events.
In this essay I will explore the usage of colours in The Wizard of Oz, attempting to show how colours are used for different purposes and how their meanings can be changed. Rather than using a display of colour for the simple purpose of "spectacle", colours help drive the narrative and become significant "characters" and fundamental to the development of the story, rather than just mere parts of the mise-en-scene. The idea of colour as a language in which each of them help convey an idea and an
Fitzgerald’s use of symbolism in Gatsby The novel of The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald is infused with symbolism. The symbolic meanings in the novel are fluid to a certain point; Because, they mean different things to different readers, as well as the characters in the case of this novel. Fitzgerald’s use of symbols such as: the eyes of T.J Eckleburg, the Green Light, and the Valley of Ashes is prevalent throughout the novel. The eyes of T.J Eckleburg represent different things to different characters, such as God, the haunting past, and vigil. The Green Light at the end of the Buchanan mansion docks represents both the past and the future.

The Maze Runner by James Dashner and Nineteen Eighty Four by George Orwell are two novels with many contrasting ideas. Although both authors wrote their books to appeal to different time periods, Dashner and Orwell both develop the idea of the necessity of freedom throughout their novel. This idea is brought up in both novels by using extended metaphors to represent life, the illustration of authoritarian governments and the theme of hope. In The Maze Runner by James Dashner the maze is an extended metaphor. Similarly in George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty Four Oceania represents and extended metaphor as well.
"Tell-Tale Heart: The Plan", a graphic rendition of Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart", reveals through perspective and coloration, the influence the two dimensions of the mind have on the narrator’s actions. This graphic rendition is presented in the form of seven panels, exhibiting various events of “The Tell-Tale Heart” in the first and third person perspectives. In fact, six out of the seven panels that make up this graphic rendition are presented in the third person perspective, while only one panel is presented in the first person perspective.

Being raised on the eastside of Atlanta, simply meant to me that I lived in one of the most highly black-populated cities in Georgia. I never knew that a city with so much heritage, history, and culture would be considered to a Chocolate City. Chocolate Cities was more than simply a place where many African-American lived. Rather, it symbolized an area of blackness that consisted of culture, companionship, spirituality, soul, and refinement (Hunter, Lecture 2). Stone Mountain, in particular, would become the Chocolate City that cultivated and crafted my individuality and black identity.
In the case of the books “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings” by Maya Angelou and “Things Fall Apart” by Chinua Achebe, it is obvious that, apart from entertainment, there is at least one more purpose of writing. Both Achebe 's and Angelou 's work, have in common the fact, that they have been written in order to relate information to the readers. “Things Fall Apart” serves the purpose of writing an alternative history and making the Igbo culture known, while “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings” serves the purpose of raising awareness and educating its readers about the racial segregation in the United States, during the great depression, as well as providing them with the reason as to why Maya decided to become a writer. Angelou, however writes her story, not only for the sake of her readers, but also for herself, because it is a way of self-healing and relief. Things Fall Apart is a short novel about Okonkwo, an established member of Umuofia, which is an Igbo village in what now is south-eastern Nigeria.
The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, deploys color symbolism in order to further develop characters and the plot. Fitzgerald’s use of color symbolism within The Great Gatsby not only defines the characters but adds depth to them. The most recognized color within the novel is “the single green light, minute and far away, that might have been the end of a dock” (26). In addition to the green light, there are many other colors within the novel that embody characters, objects, and ideas. The most significant and memorable colors, other than green, are white and yellow, both of which are intertwined in Fitzgerald’s fictional world of materialism and scandal.
Elements in a story shape its setting, which in turn shapes theme. Social events during the time period, symbols, and characteristics of a location are used to explicate a common lead and are able to give readers a clear image of the central message of the story. In “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” by Washington Irving, “ Rappaccini’s Daughter” by Nathaniel Hawthorne, and “The Pit and the Pendulum,” by Edgar Allan Poe, a gothic lead that highlights the theme is common. Through the use of gothic elements, setting is shaped in such a way that each protagonist explores human experience and finds that it is an enigmatic mixture of good and evil, and as a result of the setting, evil contributes to the destruction of goodness. The intense romance
