Transcript of Allusions : Mrs. Park

By: Hannah, Maeve, Miranda, Samantha, and Brena Allusion Definition Purpose More Info Example 2 Example 1 Allusions In American Born Chinese Works Cited A reference in a literary work to a person, place, or thing in history or another work of literature. The purpose of an allusion is to provoke the reader to use further thinking and make a connection that makes a text more meaningful. They also allow a reader to understand broad, complex topics by using a short and familiar image, phrase, or event. Allusions can be brief and indirect and often require background knowledge that the reader may or may not understand, making allusions difficult to find or understand, especially if the reference is not modern. One allusion in American Born Chinese is the Monkey King parable. This is because this parable is an actual Chinese story that has been passed on for many generations. Another example is on page 203, Chinkee sings Ricky Martin's "She Bangs." This is an allusion to a song that people could recognize, and find it funny when he is singing it in a chinese accent.
