Definitions: Please copy

  • Symbol- a person, object or animal that represents something else

  • Example: An eagle represents freedom

  • Extended Metaphor- where one metaphor is used throughout an entire story or poem (it extends through the whole text)


Allegory

Allegory

  • Allegory is a form of extended metaphor, in which objects, persons, and actions in a narrative, are equated with the meanings that lie outside the narrative itself. The underlying meaning has moral, social, religious, or political significance, and characters are often personifications of abstract ideas as charity, greed, or envy.

  • Thus an allegory is a story with two meanings, a literal meaning and a symbolic meaning.
