Literature Terms 1-5
1. Allegory: a tale in prose or verse in which characters, actions, or settings represent abstract ideas or moral qualities; a story that uses symbols to make a point

 (I am confused.......)

2. Alliteration: the repetition of similar initial sounds, usually consonants, in a group of words

 (Try saying that 5 times fast:)

3. Allusion: a reference to a person, a place, an event, or a literary work that a writer expects a reader to recognize
(Everytime you see this picture, your mind thinks of something dirty.)

4. Ambiguity: something uncertain as to interpretation

(You have no idea who he is talking about.)

5. Anachronism: something that shows up in the wrong place or the wrong time

(This video speaks for itself:)
