You are really looking for comparisons like a simile (words “like” or “as”) or metaphorical statements. Also personifications, alliterations, hyperbole....work as well. The mule for example is a metaphor for how woking people with no power are treated. The mule also becomes a metaphor for Jamie herself, as if she can be bought by Joe. THe irony is she is mistreated by Joe as well. THe blossoming pair tree symbolizes Janie's coming of age, the blossoming of her sexuality and illusions of marriage.
