Twin Peaks: Snoqualmie

New thought on Twin Peaks symbolism

In this post, sakka states the following:

I was listening to Julee Cruise's album "Floating into the Night", particularily "The Nightingale" which was in the series (can't remember during what episode/part though ... argh!) and I was curious if there was any symbolism related to the bird that would fit along with Twin Peaks... I Googled it:

"The nightingale is a bird who sings of love, but it is also a symbol of the connection between love and death. In the famous love story of Romeo and Juliet, for example, the nightingale's song signifies that the lovers will remain together, but in danger of death. Althouh the song was considered a good omen in some areas, in others it was thought to announce a death or to be the cry for help of a soul in purgatory."
