Zip Week #1

During my ZIP research project, I have encountered some ups and downs, as my topic is a little vague and easy to answer. My question at first is “how do the use of symbolism enhance novels”. But after I decided to change it because there is not an appropriate way to actually show my learning. Now, my question is “what makes something symbolic”, this is a more likely reasonable and I can show my work by describing the symbolism in the short story we’ve read. At first, I am frustrated about how to narrow my topic so it will be capable to search because showing symbolism in books people have not read isn’t really a good idea. Despite of the downs, I also have made a good progress researching about symbolism in literature. I find that it can appear in many forms as metaphor or allegory. During my research, I am also becoming interested in Shakespeare’s work as it pops up quite often.

  1. Great summary of the events during the week. You made it obvious what was difficult and what you had trouble with in your ZIP. Could you explain what correlation your topic has to Shakespeare?
