Allegory

Allegory

ALLEGORY A STORY, POEM, OR PICTURE THAT CAN BE INTERPRETED TO REVEAL A HIDDEN MEANING, TYPICALLY A MORAL OR POLITICAL ONE. SYNONYMS: METAPHOR, ANALOGY, DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ALLEGORY

AND SYMBOLISM ALTHOUGH AN ALLEGORY USES SYMBOLS, IT IS DIFFERENT FROM SYMBOLISM. AN ALLEGORY IS A COMPLETE NARRATIVE (STORY) WHICH INVOLVES CHARACTERS, AND EVENTS THAT STAND FOR AN ABSTRACT IDEA OR AN EVENT. A SYMBOL, ON THE OTHER HAND, IS AN OBJECT THAT STANDS FOR ANOTHER OBJECT GIVING IT A PARTICULAR MEANING. UNLIKE ALLEGORY, SYMBOLISM DOES NOT TELL A STORY.

LITERARY DEVICES USED IN ALLEGORIES (4 MIN) TAKE NOTES! HTTP://ALLEGORY.HAPPYKIDSSCHOOL.COM.TW/HOME/MODULE2/WHAT-ISALLEGORY MAUS WHILE ALLEGORIES USE METAPHOR, SYMBOLISM,

PERSONIFICATION, AND OTHER LITERARY DEVICES TO DELIVER THEIR MESSAGE, THESE DEVICES ARE NOT BY THEMSELVES AN ALLEGORY. TAKE MAUS FOR EXAMPLE. MAUS SUMMARY MAUS TAKES PLACE DURING TWO DIFFERENT PERIODS IN TIME. THE PRESENT TIME IN FLORIDA FRAMES THE STORY OF THE PAST.

IN THE PRESENT, ART INTERACTS WITH HIS FATHER, VLADEK. FROM THESE INTERACTIONS, THE STORY MOVES TO THE PAST AS VLADEK RECOUNTS HIS EXPERIENCES AS A JEW IN GERMANOCCUPIED POLAND. THE SECOND PART OF THE STORY DESCRIBES VLADEK'S LIFE IN THE CONCENTRATION CAMPS. MAUS IS AN EXAMPLE OF AN EXTENDED VISUAL METAPHOR WHERE THE ARTIST USES ANIMAL CHARACTERS TO COMMUNICATE HIDDEN MEANINGS ABOUT DIFFERENT RACIAL GROUPS TO TELL A HOLOCAUST SURVIVAL STORY.

IT IS A BRILLIANT USE OF SYMBOLISM AND METAPHOR OVER THE COURSE OF AN ENTIRE STORY, BUT IT IS NOT AN ALLEGORY BECAUSE IT USES REAL EVENTS, REAL PLACES, AND REAL CHARACTERS. TAKE AWAY THE ART, THE DRAWINGS OF THE ANIMALS, AND THE STORY IS A BIOGRAPHY OF A HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR AND HIS SON. EXAMPLES:

SYMBOL ALLEGORY FUNCTION OF ALLEGORY WRITERS USE ALLEGORY TO ADD DIFFERENT LAYERS OF MEANINGS TO THEIR WORKS. ALLEGORY MAKES THEIR STORIES AND CHARACTERS MULTIDIMENSIONAL, SO THAT THEY STAND FOR SOMETHING LARGER

IN MEANING THAN WHAT THEY LITERALLY STAND FOR. ALLEGORY ALLOWS WRITERS TO PUT FORWARD THEIR MORAL AND POLITICAL POINT OF VIEWS. A CAREFUL STUDY OF AN ALLEGORICAL PIECE OF WRITING CAN GIVE US AN INSIGHT INTO ITS WRITERS MIND AS HOW HE VIEWS THE WORLD AND HOW HE WISHES THE WORLD TO BE. LITERAL VS. ALLEGORICAL WHEN YOU READ A STORY, YOU CAN READ IT MANY WAYS.

YOU CAN READ IT LITERALLY. THIS MEANS YOU DON'T LOOK FOR ANY HIDDEN MEANINGS OR SYMBOLS. YOU READ OF MICE AND MEN, AND IT IS JUST A STORY ABOUT MIGRANT WORKERS AND THE LONELINESS OF THAT LIFESTYLE. IF YOU READ SOMETHING ALLEGORICALLY, YOU ARE LOOKING FOR HIDDEN MEANINGS FROM THE AUTHOR. FOR EXAMPLE, GEORGE IS THE COMPASSIONATE PEOPLE IN SOCIETY, CANDY IS ALL THE ELDERLY THAT FEEL WORTHLESS AND CROOKS IS THE MINORITIES DISCRIMINATED AGAINST. YEAH, AND THAT RANCH ISNT A RANCH, BUT A THE WHOLE HUMAN SOCIETY WE LIVE IN.

EQUALITYS AWARENESS PARALLELS THE AWARENESS OF THE PEOPLE IN THE CAVE THAT HAVE LIVED IN DARKNESS FOR SO LONG. FAHRENHEIT 451 WHAT SIMILARITIES DO YOU SEE BETWEEN THE WORLD IN WHICH WE LIVE TODAY AND THE WORLD DEPICTED BY RAY BRADBURY IN THE NOVEL FAHRENHEIT 451? DO YOU AGREE WITH BRADBURY THAT OUR USE OF TECHNOLOGY IS DUMBING US DOWN, MAKING US IGNORANT AND EASILY

MANIPULATED, AND SENDING US TOWARDS OUR RUIN? ANALYZE THE WAY IN WHICH FAHRENHEIT 451 IS RELATED OR SIMILAR TO OUR SOCIETY TODAY. IN WHAT WAYS IS OUR SOCIETY INFLUENCED OR EVEN CONTROLLED BY THE MEDIA AND/OR THE GOVERNMENT? DO DIFFERENT FORMS OF MEDIA (T.V., MOVIES, RADIO, MAGAZINES, NEWSPAPERS, ETC.) HAVE AN INFLUENCE OVER THE WAY PEOPLE THINK AND ACT (FREE SPEECH FOR SALE)? HOW DO THESE FORMS OF MEDIA CONTROL THE ACTIONS OF THE MEMBERS OF OUR SOCIETY? IN OTHER WORDS, IS OUR SOCIETY IN DANGER OF BECOMING THE WORLD DEPICTED IN THE NOVEL? WHY OR WHY NOT? SELECT THE MOST IMPORTANT SIMILARITIES AND NOT TRIVIAL AND INCIDENTAL SIMILARITIES.

COMPARE FAHRENHEIT 451 TO PLATOS THE ALLEGORY OF THE CAVE. DO YOU AGREE WITH PLATO AND BRADBURYS BELIEF THAT ONLY A VERY FEW CAN EVER ACHIEVE INTELLECTUAL ENLIGHTENMENT AND THAT THESE FEW ARE THE ONLY PEOPLE FIT TO RULE US? HOW IS MONTAG ON A QUEST FOR KNOWLEDGE? DESCRIBE THREE WAYS IN WHICH PLATOS ALLEGORY CAN BE COMPARED TO BRADBURYS NOVEL. HOW DOES THE ALLEGORY APPLY TO THE EVENTS THAT OCCUR IN THE NOVEL AND MONTAGS QUEST FOR KNOWLEDGE AND WISDOM? WHAT RELEVANT OR IMPORTANT POINTS DO BOTH OF THESE WORKS MAKE ABOUT OUR WORLD TODAY AND HUMAN NATURE, IN GENERAL?

PRIMAVERA INTERPRETATION THE GROUP OF MYTHOLOGICAL FIGURES IN THE NATURE SETTING TO REPRESENT THE IDEA OF THE BIRTH OF SPRING, WHILE SOME SUGGEST THAT THE WORK STANDS AS A METAPHOR FOR THE IDEA OF A NEOPLATONIC LOVE (ACCORDING TO NEO PLATONIC VIEWS, LOVE IS THE MAIN THING THAT BINDS ALL THINGS TOGETHER. AS MUCH AS THE CONCEPT WAS BASED ON THE EMOTION OF LOVE AND THAT IT CAN SUSTAIN ALL, THE FACT THAT HUMAN BEINGS ARE FUNDAMENTALLY SOCIAL IS ALSO CLEARLY BROUGHT UP IN THE CONCEPT.)

WHAT ELSE HIDES IN THE CENTRAL VENUS FIGURE STANDING UNDERNEATH HER ARCH? IT IS ABOUT THIS URGE TO EXPLORE ALL THE ELEMENTS, WHICH BUILD THE COMPOSITION; IT IS IN THE SEARCH FOR A NEW MEANING THAT THE BEAUTY OF ALLEGORY IS UNVEILED. PLATOS ALLEGORY OF THE CAVE (6:16) COPY DIAGRAM
