Transcript of Frankenstein Symbolism

What is symbolism? Symbolism is the way writers and artists represent things by symbols, or invest things with a symbolic meaning or character. A symbol is an object, action, or idea that represents something other than itself, often of a more abstract nature. In pairs Today you have an extended challenge to get your thinking cemented. You will APPLY the skills from last lesson to different types of text.

You will be exposed to three different texts, each with a degree of symbolism.

You need to write, in the same manner as last lesson, what symbolism you have found and why it has been used. Together To be able to apply last lesson's focus on symbolism to a variety of texts. Learning Objective Three before me Volunteer required to read their homework on how drama

It could be argued that Tolkien uses the Shire as a symbol of rural England that was potentially threatened by growing industry and the coming of war.
Furthermore, the use of ale is potentially symbolic of the importance of valuing the small things in life - a theme of central importance in LOTR. What symbolism have you have found and why has it been used?
