An allegory is a story in which characters and situations represent larger issues.


An allegory is when something in a piece of literature is compared to something outside of the story.

Heather certainly has a valid view of this novel, but like all good literature, it has multiple interpretations, and mine is just as valid.

A couple of definitions . . .

Allegory = the representation of abstract meanings through the actions of fictional characters that serve as symbols.

Heather, you sure are rude.
