The road on the second Mrs. de Winter's first trip to Manderley is described as "twisted and turned like a serpent." This symbolizes the sinister world of Rebecca's realm she is about to enter.

"Rhododendrons" are symbolic of Rebecca's continued presence at Manderley.

The name of de Winter's estate is symbolic of the patriarchal society depicted in the novel. Manderley.

The "nameless" shrubbery symbolizes out "nameless" second wife. The current Mrs. de Winter has no identity.
