Allegory is a form of extended metaphor, in which objects, persons, and actions in a narrative, are equated with the meanings that lie outside the narrative itself. The underlying meaning has moral, social, religious, or political significance, and characters are often personifications of abstract ideas as charity, greed, or envy. Thus an allegory is a story with two meanings, a literal meaning and a symbolic meaning.

Allegories piss me off. Because I didn't know what they were. And now I find out that a lot of things that I read are actually them (allegories) and it makes me feel stupid. But very attractive.

This post is dedicated to a special someone out there. Other wise, it is a very, very bad post.
