In the song “A fish on land” Lhasa De Sela uses the symbols and archetypes of water, fish, and land to express the theme of struggles. Sela expresses how the fish has struggles to keep living. According to Sela, said “A fish on land gasping for breath”. Fishes are creatures that are made for the ocean; they represent life: “fish are symbols of life and fertility because of their prolific powers of reproduction and the vast numbers of eggs they lay” (Stevens 336-337). The water is important for fish because they can develop and be healthy. According to Sela, she says “I dropped him in and he could breathe again and then he grow.”
