sample body paragraph
Sample Body Paragraph

Symbolism is a critical aspect in “The Golden Kite, The Silver Wind,” and the two main symbols are the mandarins and the walls. Even though the main characters are Chinese leaders, since this story is an allegory, they are actually symbolic of the leaders of the United States and Russia. During the Cold War, the leaders of the US and Russia made all the calls as to how to make their county more powerful. In this story, that is the same function of the mandarins. The mandarins make all the decisions as to how make their village more powerful than the other. Another important symbol in this story is the walls, and …… (details about walls). Without these symbols, this story would only be literal, the the story would lose its classification as an allegory.

* Extend a meaning from story to a present-day meaning.

Example:

Pride is always going to be a part of everyone’s lives. No matter if it is in a remote Chinese village or a small town in Cincinnati, Ohio, all humankind should be cognizant of the powerful power of pride, and we should always be careful to not allow pride get the best of us.

Pride is always going to be a part of everyone’s lives.
