S is for Symbolic Secrets

S is for Symbolic Secrets
I love to use symbolism in my writing. It adds to the twists, gives it something unexpected.
It goes deeper than the ordinary and makes the reader pause. Is that what was intended or is it something else entirely? What fun would a book be if all of the secrets were disclosed in the beginning?
And every good book needs secrets. What else would keep you up until 2 am flipping the pages as fast as you can in desperation if not to discover them?
What have been your favorite literary secrets, symbolic or otherwise?
