What meaning did you draw from the symbols you encountered in the reading? How does the use of symbolism contribute to understanding and depth of the novel?
Now that you have read Of Mice and Men and learned about symbolism, theme and motifs in literature, you will create a powerpoint that covers the symbols, motifs and the theme of the play. In your presentation discuss the effectiveness of symbolism in literature and analyze four specific examples of symbolism in the play with textual evidence and a visual representation. In addition cover three motifs and one theme found in the play. Be sure to explain how they are shown with textual evidence from the play, explanation, as well visual to represent the ideas.
