Symbols can also foreshadow something in a piece of literature such as:

The Grim--death or terrible/tragic misfortunes

The Grim in Harry's cup foreshadowed the fights w/ Voldemort, the death eaters, loss of friends, etc. but it also foreshadowed Sirius Black.

Sirius could transform into a black wolf that looked highly similar to the grim.

ehjhhh

I don't think you would consider those symbols because there is no underlying meaning, well depending on context. but I would put these with connotations rather symbols

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

Salutations! Would you say that the "Pocketa-pocketa" would be a symbol in the story? If not, is there anything that you would argue was a symbol -- for I am right stumped. Thank You.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

the "pocket-pocketa" doesn't really have an underlying meaning so it's not really a symbol, but it is a noise so it's more likely an onomatopoeia.

PLEASE

So, I've been trying to find what kind of literary device is in this verse(other than simile) :
'On a stormy sea of moving emotion
Tossed about, I'm like a ship on the ocean
I set a course for winds of fortune...'
I thought MAYBE it was a symbol, but with this, I'm kind of thinking maybe not. Does anybody know?

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 01/12/2015 - 09:24
It's a metaphor not personification

The line "On a stormy sea of moving emotion" is not showing personification because it isn't saying that the sea HAS or is SHOWING emotion. It is saying that emotion is moving like a stormy sea, and is a metaphor. Another example would be "a trapdoor of depression," the trapdoor isn't literally depressed, it is saying that depression is like a trapdoor.

An example of personification is the Three Little Pigs. The pigs are able to build houses, talk, and walk upright on two legs. Or in "Beauty and the Beast" when clocks, candles, plates, and tea pots are able to sing and dance like regular humans.

In the next line there is a simile. "Tossed about, I'm like a ship on the ocean."
Then, "I set a course for winds of fortune...", is another metaphor.

On a stormy sea of moving

On a stormy sea of moving emotion is personification because people have emotions, but a sea can't

sea symbolizes life and can

sea symbolizes life and can be interpreted as the "known qualities of life"
ocean symbolizes the beginning of life, stability, the unfathomable, and chaos.

homeworkk!!!!

would a cabin used for vacation be a symbol?

also i don't get what symbols are. or how to find them in a passage

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 10/10/2014 - 00:35
Reply

It depends on if the cabin represents something bigger—if, for example, that is a cabin that everyone in one family has visited at one time or another. Then it would represent longevity and maybe some darker things.

Symbols are just things that allude to something else. A dove is a symbol of peace and so is an olive branch.
