As you know, a symbol is something that stands for itself ( concrete noun) but also something larger than itself (abstract noun). Writers often use a concrete object/noun to express an abstract idea, a quality or a belief. A symbol may appeal to a reader’s emotions and can provide a way to express an idea, communicate a message, or clarify meaning.
There are conventional symbols and private symbols. A conventional symbol is one that is widely accepted and known. For example, a dove might represent peace, a rose might represent love, etc. A private symbol is one that an individual writer creates for his/her work of literature.
Think about the items that surround your life. Choose one symbol (concrete noun) and write about what it represents
(abstract noun). Make sure you elaborate fully and write a minimum of 100 words.
