In the classic novel The Great Gatsby, a very mysteriously wealthy man whom people know by the name Gatsby is seen standing at the end of a dock reaching towards a green light. Throughout the novel it becomes evident to the reader that the green light symbolizes prosperity, happiness, and infinite hope.

My favorite scene and soundtrack from The Great Gatsby. OST: Green Light (Craig Armstrong featuring The xx).

Effective symbolism within literature is often made very clear to the reader. This quote by Roger Ebert shows us that if a symbol is being used, it will be well exaggerated within the text.

Authors use symbolism to strengthen poems. A  poem by William Blakes : "Ah Sunflower, weary of time, Who contest the steps of the sun; Seeking after that sweet golden clime Where the traveler’s journey is done.” In this poem he uses the sunflower to symbolize the desire for ever lasting life and human kind.

In Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven" is a good example of symbolism. The title itself lets the reader know that the theme is based around death because a raven usually symbolizes death and sorrow. For example, in the book the influence of a raven upon the man ultimatley and symbolically resulted in his death.
