    Re: literary terms

    An allegory is already known, established in myth or fact. It's a story or parable that had a moral or lesson that was not literal.

    An allusion is a contemporary passing reference to something else. "He alluded to his aunt's greed." "In talking about Iraq, he alluded to Vietnam."

    You may allude to an allegory.
