Abstract: Literary work was shaped from various elements. Those elements influenced each other to create an intact work. Symbol and theme were the example of the elements. In John Grisham’s Bleachers, “bleachers” could be the symbol of the story. Hence, the writer would like to prove that. The writer wanted to find out the meaning of “bleachers” to draw the theme.Roberts and Jacobs’ theory became the foundation in analyzing whether bleachers could be recognized as the symbol. They stated that symbol was recognized if signifying a sustained constancy of meaning, appearing to be of major important and referring to a significant idea, emotion, or quality. They also stated that theme was a central controlling idea.Finally, as seen from signifying a sustained constancy of meaning, appearing to be of major important and referring to a significant idea, emotion, or quality, “bleachers” in Bleachers novel could be recognized as the symbol. It symbolized success. Success in this story referred to struggle,strong wills and victory. Those ideas shaped the theme of the story that “success does not happen accidentally”.
