The Selfish Giant


(i) When spring came, it was still winter in the garden. What does winter stand for or indicate here?


Winter is a negative and desolate setting in the tale. Trees and flowers are not blossoming in this setting. Winter also relates to a depressive and lazy atmosphere. Because birds didn't sing, kids didn't play and spring didn't visit the garden, their stay in the garden was extended by winter.
