Symbols and Symbolism of Chaim Potok's Promise

- "Promise" by Paul Lawrence Dunbar is filled with symbolism. The basic definition of the word "promise," the title of the poem, refers to something to be given, granted, or willingly kept for the future. Yet no promise is fulfilled. A study of the plot reveals there really was no promise or guarantee at all--only an assumption. The "gardener" in this poem symbolizes a lover who, only to satisfy his (or her) own selfish desires, nurtures and cares for another. The "rose" symbolizes a loved one, a loved one eventually lost because the lover tries to hold onto, earn, and force love....   [tags: Chaim Potok Promise Essays]
