Symbols in the story The Gift of the Magi
Transcript of Symbols in the story The Gift of the Magi
because that is something the couple lack, Eternity because gold does not rust or ever disappear. Love because Jim gave up his most prized possession his gold watch to buy Della a Christmas present. Della's hair symbolizes youth. By cutting her hair off to have money to buy her husband a gift it is like her giving up the "best years of her life" to Jim. Summary The 5 symbols I chose were what I think were the main symbols that represented or reinstated the moral "It is better to give than receive" throughout the story. The 5 symbols that i chose were; The Gray Cat, Gold, Combs, Christmas, and Della's Hair. The gray cat symbolizes loss of hope and sadness. Gold represents eternity and love. The Combs stated Jim's love for Della. Christmas is the whole setting throughout the story it is the holiday of hope and gift giving also the Three Wise Men or The Magi. Della chopping off her hair to buy Jim a chain that represents her love to her husband that she will do anything for him. These five items that show up within the story represent the everlasting moral.
