Symbol Meaning & Definition

A Symbol is an object- animate or inanimate- that stands for something else. In a general sense, everything is a symbol of what it means or signifies. For example- the ‘sun’ is a symbol of ‘light’, the ‘lion’ is the symbol of ‘ferocity’, the ‘flower’ is the symbol of ‘beauty’ etc. But in literature when an object is used to represent, illustrate, clarify, to deepen, reinforce or intensify the meaning or significance of something else is called a Symbol. In brief, to say, the use of symbol is a literary device to represent and reinforce a thing, an idea, a feeling or a circumstance. 0 0 0.
