INSTRUCTIONS. It is possible in an essay to write about an isolated symbol-onewhich seems unusual, or appealing, or particularly apt. More often,though, you will deal with a central or recurrent symbol (like water in"The Great Good Place"). If you write about an isolated symbol, your thesis should be a strong statement of the existence of the symbol in the work,and, the body of your essay should be composed of statements that actuallyconstitute evidence of the existence of the symbol. As you develop paragraphs in the body of the essay, make clear your reasons for ascribing the symbolic significance you do, show the function of the symbol in the work, and above all, prove that awareness of the symbol enriches understanding or appreciation of the work.
The references to whelps do allow us to start making a distinction between these two animals. Whilst the lion is generally pictured as launching an announced, regal and formidable attack the bear appears to work from blind fury. On three separate occasions  the anger of a bear separated from her young is noted. It may even be significant that the anger referred to and the known case of a bear killing people each refers to female bears. Another distinction is that whilst the lion usually is viewed as having power in the teeth it is the paws of a bear that allow the prey to be dismembered  .
