Symbols and themes of Truman Capote’s Miriam short story?

My class, we've discussed about what Miriam might symbolize. We've talked about the colors Capote used as symbols. However, my teacher never explained what Miriam's theme is or what the 3 old men in the story represent. We have an essay due on it two days from now and I have nothing to talk about.

    Hi Sweet, The short stories of Truman Capote are connected to his childhood experiences in Alabama. Truman capote was an American born writer who wrote non- fiction, short stories, novels and plays. All of his literary works have been perceived as literary classics. The tones of some of his stories are slightly gothic. His most famous short story is Children on Their Birthdays.

But Capote has, in addition, an ability to control tone, an honest tenderness toward those of his characters he can understand . Read the complete essay here:
