Evaluating Literature—symbols

Symbols convey and enlarge meanning, telling us indirectly what the author doesn't have to.

Thelonius Monk (jazz musician)—unbound by convention; innovative, spontaneous, just like Doc.
Christmas—a time of birth, new beginnings.
Powder—covers roadways and signs—there are no guideposts in life; creates a fresh, unknown world, open to new possibilities.
Roadblock—removing the roadblock "unblocks" the way forward into a new life for the son.
