The Crucible is not an allegory, although many mistake it to be for obvious reasons. The Crucible was written, in part, because Arthur Miller (the playwright) was angered at his friend during The Red Scare. His friend, Kahn, reported a list of government names who were taking inside steps towards communism. Miller, upset at his good friends false accusations, wrote The Crucible shortly after.

What is a literary work in which the characters and plot correspond to people and events from the real world?
i dont know h333 ------- the whole story's an allegory of the Russian Revolution. Be careful, because it's not a 'satire' nor a 'parody'. An allegory is a story that can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning, whereas a 'satire' uses humour to make fun of someone or something and a 'parody' imitates an author or genre's style of writing and exaggerates for a comical effect. So remember, Animal Farm= allegory.
Allegory is a form of extended metaphor, in which objects, persons, and actions in a narrative, are equated with the meanings that lie outside the narrative itself. The underlaying meaning has moral, social, religious, or political significance, and characters are often personifications of abstract ideas as charity, greed, or envy. Thus an allegory is a story with tow meanings, a literal meanings and a symbolic meanings.
The literary term "allegory" is a very old and yet, still today, quite commonly used term. Its fundamental definition is "symbolic story"; that is, an allegory is a narrative (or, story) of some kind that tells one tale at the surface with another tale being told through symbolic interpretation of the characters, events, images, etc., of that "surface" story.

Using Animal Farm, Orwell mocks the rebels of the Bolshevik Revolution. The revolutionists want to overthrow the Russian Czar because of cruel and unfair treatment. Once the Czar is defeated, however, the leaders of the revolution (now proclaimed as leaders of the…
A modern day dictionary would tell us that a parable is a short allegorical story designed to teach a moral principal, but the first-century Greek translation defines a parable as an illustration, a comparison, or an analogy, most likely in the form of a story, using every day events to teach a moral or spiritual truth. An allegory is a story that contains many metaphors. Every part of an allegory must be noted, for allegories…
In the conversation of king Edwin bede makes a comparison of a sparrow's flight and a human life this is an example of which figure of speech?
While I'm not familiar with the specific comparison to which you refer, it sounds as if the term you want is "simile." According to Wikipedia: "A simile is a juxtaposed comparison of two or more objects to draw attention to their similarities. In English, similes are typically marked by use of "like" or "as" or "than", or "resembles". Similes are a specific and formulaic form of allegory."
