Compare and Contrasting of Literature

Recommended Posts

So I am doing my EE on Blindness by Jose Saramago, and Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell. I was thinking about comparing and contrasting some of the symbols and motifs that are in the books. I was just wondering what you think of my symbols and motifs, and what (else) they could mean.

So far, I have:


-Vampirism: Reincarnation

-The colour blue: Freedom, coldness (of the vampires)


-Alice in Wonderland references

-1984 references

-Flowers: Peace, love, beauty, rebirth!

-Sun(light): Freedom


...for Cloud Atlas. I have not yet read Blindness.
