Symbolism is when a writer uses an object, person, place, or action to represent something else, usually an idea or emotion. For example, in the Harry Potter series, the sorting hat is a symbol of the power of choice. Or if someone says they’re feeling “under the weather” they’re actually not talking about the weather at all – they’re using a symbol for feeling sick. So you see, symbolism isn’t only for literature and fancy art – it’s for everyday life too!
