SYMBOLISM IN LITERATURE SYMBOL Definition- A literary symbol is something which means more than .

When a flower, the moon, or a fountain is used as a symbol, it comes to mean more than the bloom of a plant, a source of night at light, or a device that recycles water. It is pregnant with a larger significance; it means something beyond itself. The moon, for instance, may stand for change, uncertainty, or lack of continuity.
