Allegory

Annotations:

  • a story that functions on two levels: a literal level and a symbolic level. 
  1. A story that functions on two levels... Literal and Symbolic
    1. The literal story may tell a tale that seems ordinary, of people and events.
      1. On the symbolic level, the allegory is likely to teach a moral lesson, relying on characters and events to represent abstract ideas or concepts, such as freedom, evil, or goodness.
        1. To be effective, the allegory must succeed on both levels. It must tell an interesting story, and it must convey an important symbolic theme or lesson.
          1. As you read “The Blue Stones,” think about the literal and symbolic levels of this allegory. Consider what the characters, objects, and events might stand for besides their literal meaning. Then think about how specific symbols work together to form the allegory’s moral lesson.
          2. So,, what does the allegory DO?
            1. It teaches a lesson about life
            2. What does a allegory always have?
              1. Symbols
