Themes, Allusions & Symbols

Give 1 example of each.

Themes

The theme of any literary work is the base topic or focus that acts as a foundation for the entire literary piece. The theme links all aspects of the literary work with one another and is basically the main subject. The theme can be an enduring pattern or motif throughout the literary work, occurring in a complex, long winding manner or it can be short and succinct and provide a certain insight into the story.

Symbols

A symbol is literary device that contains several layers of meaning, often concealed at first sight, and is representative of several other aspects, concepts or traits than those that are visible in the literal translation alone. Symbol is using an object or action that means something more than its literal meaning.

Allusion

An allusion is a reference to a person, place, thing, or idea of historical, cultural, literary, or political significance. It does not describe in detail the person or thing in which it refers. Ex: I found my Garden of Eden.
