a literary device that uses things like animals to express abstract ideas.

 Symbolism is a literary device that makes the use of symbols to signify ideas and qualities, by giving them symbolic meanings different from their original meanings. Sometimes is an object representing another with a more significant meaning, or it can be an action or an animal: a dove symbolizes peace; a smile is a symbol of friendship.

Yes symbolism is a figure of speech.
In this figure of speech, an object, word or a image would mean more than its literal meaning, in other words, symbolising any quality or notion.
For example: Purple[colour] depicts royalty[quality], oak leaves[object] depict strength[ and power[qualities], etc.

Hope this helps...
