    An Analysis of A Tale for Children Symbolism is often used to subtlety enhance a story's meaning by adding emphasis and details to the story line. However, Garcia-Marquez, in "A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings", cloaks his tale for children in a dreamlike quality conveyed purely through symbolism.

The magic realism used in this story illustrates many aspects of our society today. The reaction of the...
  • Previous Saint Michael The Archangel

    Unseen by the ordinary eye, angels serve one of religious art's primary objectives: they make visible God's invisible majesty and participation in human lives. While the idea for angels derives from winged emissaries of the ancient Near East, their representation in Christian art is based on Eros or Cupid, gods in classical antiquity. They are envisioned as ethereal, winged creatures, as in Giovanni Battista Tiepolo's Flight into Egypt, or as winged children, as in the Gualenghi-d'Este Hours. Ar...
