Storyboard Text

  • Symbol: The Falling Man
  • Symbol: Wearing White
  • Symbol: Oskar's Inventions
  • Throughout the novel, the picture of the falling man is a symbol of hope to Oskar because he thinks it might be his Dad. Although the man will die, Oskar believes it will be less painful than burning to death, and he hopes his Dad wasn't in pain when he died.
  • Throughout the book, Oskar only wears white. This is symbolic of Oskar's innocence and reluctance to let go. Since black is the symbol of mourning, the color white symbolizes Oskar's inability to move on from his father's death.
  • Oskar's inventions symbolize his guilty. Things like his bird seed shirt are meant to help people. In his mind, if his Father had had the bird seed shirt, he could have survived jumping out the window, which is how Oskar believes he died.
