The Frog King has a lot of symbolism and lessons? Written within it. One of the big things I believe this story was written for was to show the young girls reading it that arranged marriage wasn’t that bad. At first the girl is detested by the frog,but is still forced to honor her promise by her father. She still despises the frog until she either kisses him or is thrown against the wall,depending on the version, and changes into a handsome prince. This just goes to show forced marriages can still turn out good and it isn’t as bad as it first seems. I also believe the gold ball could further symbolize arranged marriage. Gold is often a color that is associated with wealth and the girl looses “her favorite toy” which is the golden ball. I believe in some situations this could show how her family lost their wealth and is marrying the daughter off to a “frog king” to get it back. Similar to how the frog retrieves her golden ball, he returns the wealth to her/ her family. The gold ball could also symbolize a couple other things. Gold is used to make jewelry and other valuable things, but nots in it raw form. The young immature princess hasn’t been shaped into a person yet, similar to the unshaped gold ball. She is without her own morals or ideas, she promises to the frog she will let him sleep with her and is more than willing to break this promise if not for the stern words of her parents to honor her word. Many fairy tales involve this theme of a young/beautiful

For a lot of people gold means wealthy, In The glass Castle gold are used as hope and happiness and something to look forward to in the near future. The family held onto the thought that gold could give them something to be looking forward to whether it's the wedding ring or the glass castle it was valuable to them. "That was why we had to find gold. To get mom a new wedding ring. That and so we could build the Glass Castle" (Wells28). This example proves that gold symbolizes the one thing superior to look forward to during the difficult times. In conclusion, I feel like gold has a very strong importance to the Glass castle and the family.
Mr. Samuel E. Frog was a great man. From the morning of October 15, 1927 to April 29, 2017, Mr. Frog has always inspired others by saying that they could be whomever they wanted to be.

This ball represents perfection in an imperfect environment, and at this time, anything that good wasn't meant to last, because it would be taken away. Like their childhood. Like their whole perception of their whole world. This ritual, the burial of the ball, is an attempt to stop time, and to preserve perfection in an imperfect world. It was so perfect that they did not want to loose it, "We buried it because it was
Disney films over their course of existence have hidden double meanings in many of the films they produce. Rather if you are a child or a full pledged adult, people from all different ages can receive a bit of advice when it comes to what Disney films try to convey in their motion pictures. Disney is also to be known for some of their unforgettable whimsical characters and memorable songs in every film. The film released in 2009 “The Princess and The Frog” is no different. Especially when it comes to Mama’s Odie’s musical number half way through the film. Mama’s Odie’s song, “Dig a Little Deeper” is full of metaphors, themes and imagery one can deeply analyze.
In "Cinderella';, the ball is held so the prince can get to know the young women of the town, and to see if he will be able to find a suitable wife.

In the novel the word gold is used as something rare or so special you want to keep it forever and ever.
In addition, the first idea to remember is that in classic Disney films, princesses often appear as the damsel in distress. Their submissive obedience leads to them being victimized, leading to the heroic appearance of their true love. This is seen in the classic Disney movie, Cinderella, her ultimate obedience to her stepmother transforms her into the victim or a damsel in distress in the movie. When the prince is introduced, he acts as the hero when he

Symbolism is the use of symbols to represent ideas or qualities. The use of symbolism gives readers the ability to find deeper meanings that are beyond what’s described on paper. In Ralph Ellison’s short story, “Battle Royale”, he uses blindfolds, the battle royal, and the narration to symbolize exactly what African Americans went through for equality and the struggle they had to endure.

These years are going to be forever known as the years with Trump—the years of oppression, ruin of society, etc. some might say. William Golding, taking his older counterpart of this, is an author who uses a wide array of symbols in an attempt to demonstrate human nature and its contrast to society. In his speculative fiction novel, The Lord of the Flies, William Golding designs an indignant Piggy with an aptitude for reasoning and a being that’s disapproved of. Most importantly, Piggy is a sharp English child and an undeviating (former)member of society.
In “The Faerie Queene”, Spencer Edmund produces an allegory. His intention was to relate England in the 1590s to a mythical land in which each character had a symbolic meaning as well as the events they were undergoing. He lived in an era where Roman Catholicism was replaced with Protestantism and he dedicated himself to unconsciously teach and educate his readers the Catholic Church was corrupted and was the wrong religion to follow. For this reason, he gave each character a common role who would relate to anyone in England and showed the readers how his role in the story symbolized good or evil. The themes he expressed in his books talked about his interpretation in religion, politics, symbolism, and his dedication to make his allegory as influential as possible.
