Symbolism Thesaurus

If you haven’t been to The Bookshelf Muse’s website, you’re missing out.  Their latest thesaurus is the Symbolism Thesaurus.  Here’s what they have to say about it:

Each thesaurus collection is built with one concept in mind–creating powerful description. So far we’ve looked at how to show emotion, how to create effective comparisons and contrasts, and how to weave the 5 senses into our settings. The Symbolism Thesaurus will take things a step further. Not only will this new tool help you think more carefully about what your choose to describe, it will also help you utilize symbolism to create a lasting effect on the reader.

By definition, symbolism in writing is a word, phrase or object that has a deeper meaning. Symbolism connects to readers on a higher, more intuitive level, reinforcing an important message, theme or emotion that the writer wants to convey.
