Chapter 7 explores the role of symbols in conveying literary themes. Themes are  abundant in literary works (though they are at some times more obvious than at others).  Select  one  short story from the reading assignments (from either Week One or Week  Two) to examine more closely in relation to symbolism. Consider the story’s overall  theme(s)  and  use of images as well as how these two relate to one another. You may  choose to explore one single recurring symbol, or you may discuss multiple symbols  and how they relate to one another.  At the beginning of your post, identify ( a ) the literary work that you will analyze  and  ( b the theme(s) that is/are most relevant to the symbolism you will explore.
