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.
