My interest was in just simply writing the story, and letting the symbolism fall where it may. Hemingway was right about that. You don’t try to build in, self-consciously, a bunch of preconceived symbols. If we make a real river, and real canoes, and real men, and real monsters, and real arrows, and real shotguns, and real woods, and real rapids and white water, then all the other stuff will take care of itself.
