Product Description
Literary Devices: Theme Revealed Through Characterization and Symbolism in “Rip Van Winkle”

This lesson focuses on Washington Irving’s use of characterization and symbolism in developing tyranny as a major theme in the story. Students will examine passages from the text to determine how the theme is developed through Rip Van Winkle’s relationship with his wife and through the symbolic significance of the pictures of King George III and George Washington. In studying the Van Winkles’ marriage and the pictures on the sign at the village inn, students will be better able to describe two types of tyranny, their consequences, and how they inform the theme.
