Eyes are powerful symbols. The mere glance glimmer gawk gaze ogle glare bore focus beam sparkle peek peer look goggle gape leer (did I miss any?) reveals a character’s emotions. No wonder the eyes are the windows of the soul. But there’s more to eyes than…well, meets the eye.

Symbolism is never ‘this means that.’ Symbols and their layered meanings act as a diving board into a deep pool of emotional, psychological, spiritual, cultural, and intellectual dynamics that YOU decide how to mold and manipulate. It’s just one more tool for your writing toolbox.

This episode looks at ancient eye symbolism, symbolic eye colors, and the emotion in someone’s eyes. Look at your characters with new eyes!
