The Use of Thematic Symbolism in The Scarlet Letter


the Use of Thematic Symbolism in The Scarlet Letter

the island in comparison to the whole world. It also seems that, probably because of his oppressive behavior, she wants to drive her husband away. I want to astonish him. It seems that her husband is oblivious to her declining condition, since he never admits she has a real problem until the end of the story, at which time he fainted. But John would not hear. The many different characters on the island are symbols of important people. This disgusting display of materialism just shows how the American Dream has changed from living a happy life with your family, to obtaining the most expensive and exotic items. Most of the characters face some sort of class boundaries, so the East and West Eggs act as a symbol for the barriers by showing a physical separation of the two classes. They had been told their whole lives that America was the land of opportunity and that the streets were paved with gold, but when they got there they realized it wasn t all that different from the homeland which they so eagerly deserted. Perhaps that is one reason I do not get well faster. It is worth taking note that his longing is represented by the color green, which is associated with money and envy.

This same attitude is inconcevable truth seen in her brother, who is also a physician. Daisy begins to cry and says they are the most beautiful shirts she has ever seen. There is no apparent reason for this other than to force him to see that he was wrong, and, since she knew he couldnt tolerate hysteria, to drive him away. He associates Daisy with the green light, and it becomes a symbol of her throughout the novel. If a physician of high standing, and ones own husband, assures friends and relatives that there is really nothing the matter with one but temporary nervous depression a slight hysterical tendency what is one to do? Fitzgerald s, The Great Gatsby, became an instant classic because of the symbolism used to enhance the theme throughout the novel. In large part because of her oppression, she continues to decline. Religious symbols, use of graphical abstractions to represent religious concepts. The parachuter, that the boys think is the beast, shows that they cannot get away from war, and they have war themselves later. He was a crazy leader who killed many people because he wanted power. It eluded us then, but thats no matter- tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther And one fine morning- (189).

Fitzgerald uses the judging eyes of Eckleburg to emphasize the lack of guilt in this culture, and to make a point that perhaps these crimes do need to be punished. (Fitzgerald 26) The green light that he appears to be reaching for is the light on Daisy s dock. She is virtually imprisoned in her bedroom, supposedly to allow her to rest and recover her health. To Jack it is a sacrifice for the beast. John could have obtained council from someone less personally involved in her case, but the only help he seeks was for the house and baby. When Gatsby is first seen, he stretched out his arms toward a single green light, minute and far way, that might have been the end of a dock. Because most of the characters do not seem to have any values or guilt for their misdeeds, Fitzgerald implements the eyes of Eckleburg as a means of judging those who do not fear judgment for their careless actions. It is very small, with no food or soft ground, but the boys still go there because they can defend.
