Short story analysis

Short story analysis.

This short story contains a few symbols that help us understand Miss Brill’s character. The fur Miss Brill wore symbolises herself. It is taken from its small, dark box and brought into the open air, only to be returned back with great regret. It may also symbolise non-existent adventurous life of Miss Brill as she calls the fur ”Little rouge...”. The ermine toque symbolises the elder people sitting on the benches or walking by. They were young and full of dreams once, they were beautiful as well but times waits for no one. Orchestra symbolises or rather expresses Miss Brill’s emotions going up and down, one moment playing more cheerful than before, another moment slowing down the music and changing the melody.
