Objective Correlative...

...is the artistic and literary technique of representing or evoking a particular emotion by means of symbols that objectify that emotion and are associated with it. The concept was first used by American painter and poet Washington Allston in 1840 to describe artistic relationships to emotion, but T.S. Eliot rediscovered and popularized it throughout his career, though several critics have opposed the notion as he conceived it.
