Describe symbols in the miracle worker and give examples of them?
Is this enough? Im having a hard time with this questin!
Please help!
Here is my answer.
This story has many symbols in it and describes Helen. In this story, water symbolizes rebirth, life and cleanliness. Because this was Helens first word, she is not a helpless deaf-mute infant anymore. Locked doors, “Helen is like safe, needs to be unlocked” is the quote in which describes the symbol locked doors.
They key symbolizes Helen learning. In the beginning of the play, Helen wanted to lock Annie out of her mind, but when the play progresses, it slowly turns out to be that Helen gives the key to Annie for her knowledge. Having these symbols in the plays made it easier to piece together the story.
how does this sound?
