Allegory meaning

What is Allegory:

Allegory is a philosophical, artistic and literary concept that consists of the representation of a symbolic meaning. The word allegory is of Latin origin allegory, which translates into speaking figuratively.

As a literary figure, allegory is a rhetorical device that represents an expanded metaphor, and in some cases similar to personification or prosopopeia. The allegory consists of leaving aside the denotative meaning of the word and putting into practice the figurative meaning of the word, that is, it represents an idea or concept through allusive or metaphorical images, implying something different from what is being expressing.
