Abstract

This descriptive qualitative study aim at finding out and analyzing symbol and their meaning which was used in Cat in the Rain Story written by Ernest Hemingway along with figuring out the meaning of the symbol itself, and the relationship between these points. The data in this descriptive study were being analyzed by using the theory of Kirszner and Mandell also supported by Shaw and Perrine theory. The finding showed that there were literally symbols that were found in this story, specifically contextual symbols, for instance: The bad weather, the empty square on the first paragraph which implicitly stated the negative moods (The conflict or the crisis or “emptiness” in the marriage of the couple in this story) The cat which represented the woman/ her “desire” to be understood by the husband and so on where the cat became the dominant main symbol uttered in this short story.
