The last pieces of work I produced for the summer project before the final piece. Still looking at the ‘dream’ theme, I started to look at symbolism and how this is used in the book; mainly so I could attempt work that was slightly more abstract but still related to ‘The Road’. Looking at symbolism is probably going off on a tangent a little bit too much, but it was interesting to learn about none the less, and there are paragraphs such as this one below (which is in fact the last paragraph in the novel) that don’t make initial sense in the narrative, however to me is quite symbolic of McCarthy’s intentions for writing the book, and I think this is a really provocative paragraph on which to end the novel on.

'Once there were brook trout...'

'Carrying the Fire'

Heathen Candles

Sun Mother
