What is Allegory, and how can it be effectively used to develop writing content?


The child down the street said to his brother... if you keep saying that Lucus, you will be like the boy who cried wolf. As his words echoed off of my ear drums I remembered that story from my own childhood. It made me wonder about the stories of our own lives and the use of allegory. What is allegory and how can we use it better to develop our own writing? What are some of the other examples of the use of allegory in writing?
