* GradeSaver has this title that you can put your question under.

There are many allusions to the Bible: – "angel wid de sword"

Isaac and Rebecca – "at the well"

Alice in Wonderland

"grinning…like a pack of chessy (Cheshire) cats" Chapter 9

I believe Dente's Inferno is there as well as allusions to the Civil War, slavery, Abraham Lincoln...
