  • 67. Student Edublog<br />Symbolism goes much deeper than I have previously mentioned. In “The Road Not Taken”, the author is deciding what decision he should make. It could be one that benefits him greatly, or it could be one that devastates him. Hence, there is two roads before him in his mind. This is symbolism, saying that the choices before him is two roads that he could take. In “O Captain, My Captain!”, the author is telling about Abraham Lincoln (the captain) leading the ship (the Civil War troops) back home. The story is a sweet and sour mix of triumph and tragedy. The joyous and grateful occasion of the troops returning back home is tainted and overshadowed by the fact that Abraham Lincoln, the “captain” that directed the “ship” through the Civil War has went to his reward in Heaven. This is symbolism by saying that Abraham Lincoln is the captain guiding the ship a.k.a the Civil War troops through the Civil War, and that the return trip home is a mix of joy and sorrow. Thus, symbolism is much more in depth than was originally thought. Symbolism is used in many ways in literature, and can support a lot of things from making decisions to telling about a joyous-turned-tragic homecoming.<br />
