Passage? Get out that handout. The main character in Through the Tunnel is about to undergo a rite of passage. As you read today, think about how his experiences compare to the stages in a rite of passage. This comparison will help you determine a theme. How do symbols develop theme? Through the Tunnel by Doris Lessing

Fun fact! Lessing was born in Iran and spent much of her childhood in Southern Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) She dropped out of school at 13. (It was 1932) She then educated herself. She recently commented that unhappy childhoods seem to produce fiction writers. "Yes, I think that is true. Though it wasn't apparent to me then. Of course, I wasn't thinking in terms of being a writer then - I was just thinking about how to escape, all the time.

A Symbol is a item that stands for something besides itself it usually carries some part of the authors theme. Frequently, in a story, an object, a person, a color, etc. may appear that functions on two levels Literal-it is the thing it is Figurative-it has a hidden meaning that the author is hinting at

(Its called a May/December relationship for a reason!) Sensory details/Mood/Atmosphere Sensory details/Mood/Atmosphere TIME OF DAY! It too, can be symbolic. What goes on four feet in the morning, two feet at noon, and three feet in the evening?

From Oedipus Rex BUT THERE CAN BE MORE THAN ONE SYMBOLIC MEANING! Night a time of shadows/hidden desires NOON a time of truth Analyzing a poem for symbolism Read the poem, The Street With your partner, underline the different elements of the setting.

Next, write down what could be a symbolic meaning for those elements. What message is the author conveying about the speaker through the setting? Write your response on the back. Use details to show your point. Be prepared to share out. Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time. -Thomas A. Edison
