Lesson Plan A Fighter's Lines

A Fighter's Lines

Activity 1: Understanding Symbolism in the Poem

There are several symbolism in the poem.

Again, to refresh you with the meaning of symbolism, it simply means the use of a person, an object, a place, pr an idea to represent it self and something beyond itself at the same time. For example, white color symbolizes purity, decency and what not. 

Now, let's look at the symbolism in the poem. there are generally 3 symbolism in the poem. They are:
  • Soldier
  • Wall of People
  • Heirs of our Freedom
The first one is the soldier. the soldier represents the fight for independence as they are the one who fought in the battle of independence.

The 'Wall of People' represents the united citizens in order to have freedom.

Lastly, the 'Heirs of our Freedom' represents the people under the independent government. Those who inherited the  freedom. Heir means people who inherit something.
