Transcript of ANIMAL FARM
What is an allegory?
By Benjamin Yang, Caroline Lee, and Cubie Chang
Reading Literally vs. Allegorically
If you read something LITERALLY, you DO NOT look for any hidden meanings or symbols.
And while reading something ALLEGORICALLY, you look for hidden meanings from the author.
A story or picture that represents a typical or political meaning.
e.g. "The Butter Battle Book", "The Lorax", "The Cat in the Hat"...by Dr. Seuss ; "Animal Farm" by George Orwell

Of the golden future time...
