17Give the Sequence of the Use of Fire in the Story Mr. White grabs it out. The small fire in the pipes of Herbert and Mr. White represent their thoughts. Mrs. White alludes to the coldness of the grave (the absence of the family’s hearth).
18Give the Sequence of the Use of Fire in the Story The small candle lights up the demand for a another wish by Mrs. White. The paw is on the fireplace mantle. As Mr. and Mrs. White waited, the candle flame flickered and then died.
19Give the Sequence of the Use of Fire in the Story In bed again and anxious in the darkness, Mr. White gets up and strikes a match. When the match goes out he strikes another as he hears the knock on the door. The matches fall from his hand.
20Give the Sequence of the Use of Fire in the Story The rest of the story is in darkness as Mrs. White runs to the door, and Mr. White gropes in the darkness for the paw. It’s a cold empty wind that enters the house when Mrs. White opens the door. The last image is of a street lamp flickering.
21Analyze the Symbol of Fire Fire is the symbol for fate. When we use fire respectfully, it has great value. It warms us, cooks our food and heats our water. It provides light in the darkness and creates a safe and warm mood.
22Analyze the Symbol of Fire When we are careless with fire it can burn and destroy. Fire has the potential to destroy lives and all possessions. Fire is difficult to control when it gets out of hand, and has been the source of much damage throughout history.
