Your initial thread should be three paragraphs in length (200+ words) and provide textual evidence. You should provide at least one direct quote from the source formatted in MLA Style.
You will identify symbolic elements within â€œThe Lotteryâ€ by Shirley Jackson and “Bartleby, the Scrivener” by Herman Melville. As you reflect upon the symbolism, strive to go beyond objects. Keep in mind that symbols do not always refer to objects, but characters, settings, and events can also function symbolically. Identify at least one symbol in one of these stories, and address the following questions for each symbol you discuss:
- Describe the symbol itself. Where does it appear in the story?
- What is the significance in the story of the symbol?
- What does this person, setting, or object symbolize?
- What is the authorâ€™s purpose in including this symbol in the story?
