Symbolism as a form of expression has been in existence for a relatively large extent of time. It has been used in different expression of art that not only literature, but also other fields like architecture, art and poetry. Strong statements have been used to underscore the importance of symbolism. For example, without symbolism there can be no literature. This statement seeks to emphasize the idea of arbitrary literature. If literature expresses itself with mere words, letters, combination of letters or mere sounds without the use of symbols, then its expression becomes arbitrary. Brodskaia in the endeavor of exploring the manifestation of symbolism defines symbols as a representation of that does not aim at being a reproduction (7). This paper examines the symbolism used in Guy de Maupassant’s story, “An adventure in Paris.”
