Discussion 

Topic One: Literature sources for this unit:

  • O. Henry uses the symbolism of Christmas gifts to denote what the true meaning of love could be. A classic tale written in 1905, The “Gift of the Magi” is an excellent way to look at symbolism in a short story.
    • Henry, O. (1905/2017). The gift of the magi. American Literature.
  • Alice Walker, the famed writer of The Color Purple, shares how important and haunting a family heirloom can be.
    • Walker, A. (1973). Everyday use. Harper’s Magazine

Henry and Walker provide stories that include symbols that are life-changing for the protagonist(s). In two or more well-developed paragraphs, answer the following prompts:

  • Choose a symbol from either “The Gift of the Magi” or “Everyday Use” and discuss what significance this symbol had to you as the reader (an example of this would be the combs Jim gave to Della and a discussion about a precious gift that you received or gave).  Use text examples in this section.
  • If someone were to write your life story, what symbol would be present and why?  How does this symbol represent you?   You can attach a picture of your symbol (an example of this might be a baby blanket from your childhood, or a baseball from your first game).
