Plato Wrote an Allegory | Who Knew That?

I confess that I almost never think about Plato. Aristotle, sure. But Plato

Plato's rough draft was titled, "The Allegory of the Shadow-Box."
--Mr. Big Food

I wonder what Plato's allegory would look like?
--Daughter C

"The City Mouse and the Country Mouse" is an allegory for my life for more than a few years now.
--Dr. Mike

The spiritual tone of Robert Frost's poem, "The Road Less Taken" reminds me of a cold and dreary day, which itself is an allegory.

The prosecutor convinced the jury of the defendant's guilt with an allegory describing the pain and suffering he had committed.

References to Plato's "Allegory of the Cave" have become trite... but then again references to Plato of any sort have become trite.
--A. Leland

I spent my morning reading about "Pilgrim's Progress," an allegory by John Bunyan.

Reflecting on these sentences, I bet dollars to donuts this is the one & only blog on the whole entire World Wide Web that has Plato, Bunyan, Frost, and the classic, The City Mouse & The Country Mouse in the same post.
