Transcript of Authours Background

Imagery And Symbolism
Imagery
The imagery is completely written throughout the story by how the author is describing everything.
Symbolism
The story's title is symbolism itself, because it means what it says. If Wetherton keeps going for the gold he will be stuck in a "Trap of Gold."
Authors Background
The author of the story "Trap of Gold," Louis L’Amour, born Louis Dearborn LaMoore, pursued his dreams of a writing career in the late 1930s. Since 1816, 33 members of his family had been writers. L'Amour sold his first short story, "Anything for a Pal," to True Gang Life magazine in 1935.
Protagonist and Antagonist
The protagonist of the story would be Wetherton, because he is the one with the problem.

The antagonist is the gold, because throughout the story this is what is giving Wetherton a problem by making it hard for him to achieve his goal.
