Coraline – Lesson 5

BUTTONS


button-eyes

“The black button eyes of the other mother are probably the most iconic or well-known image to come out of Coraline . . .  These buttons essentially act like masks . . . Coraline can’t tell if her other parents are watching her and she can’t get any clues through their eyes as to what they’re thinking” (Shmoop Editorial Team, 2008)

Symbolism

“Symbolism is the use of symbols to signify ideas and qualities by giving them symbolic meanings that are different from their literal sense”

The button eyes of the ‘other people’ in Coraline are examples of symbolism in the text.
