Allegory in Modern Life

I do not want Allegory in my life.  It is an affront.  Allegory is a device in which characters or events in a story, poem, or picture represent or symbolize ideas and concepts. Better to be real, if humble.  Life is not symbolic battle.  I was reading tonight where JRR Tolkien loathed allegory.... as do I.   It is degrading.
