Transcript of Symbolism
A symbol represents something other than itself.
tangible (concrete) = lightbulb
intangible (abstract) = idea
Amanda flung herself onto her bed as tears dripped down her face. She had always thought that she and Ben would be together forever. That was until Ben dropped the bombshell of information on her earlier that day about having feelings for someone else. Amanda turned over onto her side and through her watery eyes she saw the roses that Ben had sent her for her birthday the week before. When she had first received them, they had been a brilliant red, but now they were dulling in color and withered. As she watched, a single petal untangled itself from the bouquet and fell to the floor.
The rain appeared to be coming down in sheets the evening of Molly’s cousin’s funeral. Molly sat on the edge of her bed watching the dark clouds roll through the sky, watching the light dim from the sky, and listening to the clock slowly tick away the seconds. She finally gathered enough strength to reach into her closet to pull out a black dress. Before walking out of her room, Molly bent down and blew out the candle that was resting on her nightstand, leaving behind a puff of smoke.
Actions can also be symbolic.
