Transcript of Allegory, Satire, Irony, Fable

Literary Devices:
Allegory, Satire, Irony, and Fable Allegory-
Like metaphors, allegories utilize one subject as if it were comparable to another, seemingly unrelated, subject. Unlike metaphors, the representational image is more detailed and is sustained throughout the length of a story, novel, or poem. Allegories are generally understood as rhetorical, and, as a form of rhetoric, are generally designed to persuade their audience. Satire-
A literary term used to ridicule or make fun of human vice or weakness, often with the intent of correcting, or changing, the subject of the satiric attack. (Its aim is to arouse contempt). Irony-
An implied difference between what is said and what is meant. The following pictures are examples of Irony in the visual form. Fable-
A brief story or poem that is told to represent a moral or practical lesson. Characters in fables are often animals who speak or act like humans. Examples of Satirical News Article Titles Regarding The Presidential Debate

Each Table group has 2 minutes to come up with their own example of IRONY. Be prepared to share. Moral of the Story-
By pooling resources, and combining our efforts, we are each and collectively better off. Examples of Allegory in Literature-
This famous work by William Shakespeare may not be the best known example of allegory but there are many examples of allegory in Romeo and Juliet. This is especially true for the constant comparison of Romeo's love for Juliet to a religious and spiritual experience. A reader can notice this in lines like, "Call me but love and I'll be new baptized."
William Golding could not have better represented his idea of human nature and a need to put self above the rest than the way he did with this acclaimed novel. Featuring a group of schoolboys stuck on an island, this novel had allegorical representations of the rational mind, democracy, order and civility.
George Orwell's Animal Farm is probably one of the best known examples of this literary technique in which a farm governed by animals stands to represent the communist regime of Stalin in Russia before the Second World War.
The name Stone Soup comes from an old folk tale in which hungry travelers discover a poor village and offer to make soup for its villagers. They set about boiling stones and slowly convincing the villagers to add their meager food scraps to the communal pot.
