Raven Logan Allegory Allegory continued. EXAMPLES " Too much power, or abusing it can go to your head’’ In Animal Farm the pigs were given power for a good reason because they were smarter than the other animals. Politically during this time frame, Russian communist leaders got power through the government from the people but instead of helping others for their desires and needs the leaders used the power for self-gain. A story, poem, or picture that can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning, typically a moral or political one. The movie Avatar is about ( Literally) people looking for new life on another planet.

Ms. Greene j This is a rhetorical strategy of extending a metaphor through an entire narrative so that objects, persons, and actions in the text are equated with meanings that lie outside the text. Examples:
Animal Farm- A farm governed by animals stands to represent the communist regime of Stalin in Russia before the Second World War.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe- This is a biblical allegory where Aslan is Jesus. Allegories have two different meanings, a literal meaning- one animal taking control over other animals on a farm, and a figurative meaning- one person ( dictator) has control over a population of people.

Allegories can be used in two formats ( source and target) Fable This is a quote about fables:
"Fable is, generally speaking, far more accurate than fact, for fable describes a man as he was to his own age, fact describes him as he is to a handful of inconsiderable antiquarians many centuries after. . . . Fable is more historical than fact, because fact tells us about one man and fable tells us about a million men."
(Gilbert K. Chesterton, "Alfred the Great") Quote on fables:
