English

We are reading The Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy and answering questions but I am thoroughly at a loss.

here's the question:
Paris functions as a symbol in the novel, but to Eustacia it symbolizes something quite different than it does to Clym. Contrast these two symbolic meanings.



Is the answer that it Eustacia it symbolizes a freedom and a chance to leave the heath, while for Clym is represents his past?


Any help would be wonderful, thanks.
