MISTAKES!

How ironic... you should have spelled it, "Me too, Bro." Otherwise, you're saying "me to bro"... which sounds just plain wierd. Wonder why you're failing... :)

Don't give up, and remember to relax. Everyone has their favorite methods but meditation is seriously one of the best breaks one can give their mind during times of chaos!

I think this may be the literary device, but I'm not sure. I need the device that means that the author says something, but it is much more profound in meaning than what's on the surface.

I DON'T GET IT!!!

I don't get it. Please give more examples. I am reading Little Women and there are supposed to be many metaphorical stuff in it or something. I don't get it! Please help!

explaining metaphors

A metaphor is just like a simile WITHOUT using "like" or "as". For example,"He was a lion, his thick hair flowing in the wind". Many metaphors that you will see will most likely use words like "was", and "is" instead of like or as.

Allegory

Allegory mostly has to do wit representation of humans by animals or ideas... Here, these ideas or animals becomes the main characters in the story... Lyk they were humans. Just like in George's ANIMAL FARM

HELP

the saying the best place to hide a leaf is in the forest
other than an allegory what else can it be??

Posted by Anonymous on Sat, 02/08/2014 - 17:32
HELP- reply

It would be an idiom.

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 02/24/2014 - 03:06
it wrong

I think it allegory because since the leaf is green and the forest is also green the person will not find the leaf.

I remembered reading once that the best place to hide a leaf is in the forest , is this an example of allegory?

allegory or analogy?

Hmm has it (09/25/2012) - I could never describe it better than that. my only reservation is, does an allegory mean that the whole book should be like an extended metaphor, or just a theme or part of a book? - does the book have to completely metaphorically link to another to be classed as an allegory?

An Allegory is taken away

An Allegory is taken away from the whole story. A symbol is one thing in the story, as simple as a color or object, that represents something.

HELPPPP!

I need info ASAP. Can someone list another name for an allegory???? PLEASE HELPPPP! I need this info tomorrow!

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 10/19/2012 - 16:03
Hmmm

John Bunyon's "pilgrims progress" is an example of allegory -- it tells a story about a man on a journey who comes across obstacle and meets people who help him and some who hinder him while on his quest to reach his final destination -- but it's not REALLY about a man on a walk -- it symbolizes a spiritual journey.

Analogy is when I told my husband that him going to counseling is like trying to clean the house in the dark. How can you get out the yuck if you cant even see it. If you don't wanna see the filth and don't wanna clean it up - you can turn off the light and leave the room.

Analogy is a isolated comparison -- I wouldn't refer to "my husband is a struggling maid" like we all say and agree "Life REALLY is a journey"

Anagoly breaks down cause it is a comparison in order to help the listener comprehend your point. Allegory is recognizing and describing the similarities of things and talking about one as if it were another usually for a higher purpose or to demonstrate an abstract idea.

Your poor husband

Well, I hope your husband ignored your analogy and went to counseling anyway. It may take a few years to get the crusty, outside, protective layers off but, unlike "trying to clean the house in the dark," counseling and analysis can get to the heart (or should I say hurt?) of the matter and make one start to feel a whole lot better. Cleaning in the dark IS its own reward, however, if you reach under the bed to get your slippers and you don't pull out a dust bunny the way you did last time. Even if it's in the dark and you only FEEL the dust bunny, rather than actually seeing it).
Your definition above of "allegory" is really closer to "metaphor." Allegory IS an extended metaphor, longer and more of a story rather than merely singularly talking about one thing as if it were another...THAT is metaphor.

I'm doing a paper and I can't figure out what literary device this would be considered. Is it an allegory? - "I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold"

Would this constitute as an allegory?

I am trying to use ALLEGORY in my analysis paper and I am trying to say that the creation of the monster in Frankenstein is an allegory to God creating life. Is that relevant at all? Please and Thank You!
