    The allegory of all allegories, Plato''s Allegory of the Cave is not the rosiest take on the reality of human existence. You might even call it downright bleak: it envisions the world as a dark cave, human beings as trapped prisoners, and all of our experiences as nothing but shadows on a wall. "See human beings as though they were in an underground cave-like dwelling," instructs Socrates, "with its entrance, a long one, open to the light across the whole width of the cave" (514a).

    Imagine a cave with a small tunnel of light leading out and hundreds of human beings tied up so that they can''t move—they just stare straight ahead all day long (creepy, we know). But they do get a little entertainment: there''s a rockin'' shadow-puppet show projected on the wall in front of them with a fire burning in the back for light. Since this show is all these poor people can see, they think it''s the best, most awesome reality ever. They chat about it, gossip, call people names. you know, the usual.

    In allegorical writing characters, actions and setting are used as symbols and they should be interpreted to make the allegorical meaning. In the Allegory of the Cave, Plato has given a description of the cave of the cave world.

    The cave is very dark because there is little light inside it and hardly seen the objects. There are some chained people on their necks as well as feet, these chained people cannot move easily. Similarly, there is also another world out of the cave world, but between these two worlds, a wall is raised. On the wall, many other people move with different things on their hands and their shadows fall in the cave world. The people inside the cave cannot raise their head completely so that they can only see the shadows like illusion, which they believe, as real but it is just their illusion.

    Socrates. And now, I said, let me show in a figure how far our nature is enlightened or unenlightened: Behold human beings living in an underground den, which has a mouth open towards the light and reaching all along the den; here they have been from their childhood, and have their legs and necks chained so that they cannot move, and can only see before them, being prevented by the chains from turning round their heads.

    And do you see, I said, men passing along the wall, carrying all sorts of vessels, and statues* and figures of animals made of wood and stone and various materials, which appear over the wall ? Some of them are talking, others silent.

    In Book VII, Socrates presents the most beautiful and famous metaphor in Western philosophy: the allegory of the cave. This metaphor is meant to illustrate the effects of education on the human soul. Education moves the philosopher through the stages on the divided line, and ultimately brings him to the Form of the Good.

    Next, this prisoner is dragged out of the cave into the world above. At first, he is so dazzled by the light up there that he can only look at shadows, then at reflections, then finally at the real objects real trees, flowers, houses and so on. He sees that these are even more real than the statues were, and that those were only copies of these. He has now reached the cognitive stage of thought. He has caught his first glimpse of the most real things, the Forms.

    Allegory is a figure of speech in which abstract ideas and principles are described in terms of characters, figures and events.

    It can be employed in prose and poetry to tell a story with a purpose of teaching an idea and a principle or explaining an idea or a principle. The objective of its use is to preach some kind of a moral lesson.

    Sometimes you run across a literary term that pops up everywhere. Terms like that are important to understand, so today we’re delving into the world of allegory.

    For many people, the first exposure to the word “allegory” is in Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave.” If you take the story at (extremely abridged) face value, it’s about people chained in a cave who believe reality is the shadows projected onto the cave walls, and when one of them gets out and sees actual reality and attempts to explain it to the others, they kill him.

    The allegory of all allegories, Plato''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s Allegory of the Cave is not the rosiest take on the reality of human existence. You might even call it downright bleak: it envisions the world as a dark cave, human beings as trapped prisoners, and all of our experiences as nothing but shadows on a wall. "See human beings as though they were in an underground cave-like dwelling," instructs Socrates, "with its entrance, a long one, open to the light across the whole width of the cave" (514a).

    Imagine a cave with a small tunnel of light leading out and hundreds of human beings tied up so that they can''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''t move—they just stare straight ahead all day long (creepy, we know). But they do get a little entertainment: there''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s a rockin'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' shadow-puppet show projected on the wall in front of them with a fire burning in the back for light. Since this show is all these poor people can see, they think it''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s the best, most awesome reality ever. They chat about it, gossip, call people names. you know, the usual.

    In allegorical writing characters, actions and setting are used as symbols and they should be interpreted to make the allegorical meaning. In the Allegory of the Cave, Plato has given a description of the cave of the cave world.

    The cave is very dark because there is little light inside it and hardly seen the objects. There are some chained people on their necks as well as feet, these chained people cannot move easily. Similarly, there is also another world out of the cave world, but between these two worlds, a wall is raised. On the wall, many other people move with different things on their hands and their shadows fall in the cave world. The people inside the cave cannot raise their head completely so that they can only see the shadows like illusion, which they believe, as real but it is just their illusion.

    Socrates. And now, I said, let me show in a figure how far our nature is enlightened or unenlightened: Behold human beings living in an underground den, which has a mouth open towards the light and reaching all along the den; here they have been from their childhood, and have their legs and necks chained so that they cannot move, and can only see before them, being prevented by the chains from turning round their heads.

    And do you see, I said, men passing along the wall, carrying all sorts of vessels, and statues* and figures of animals made of wood and stone and various materials, which appear over the wall ? Some of them are talking, others silent.

    In Book VII, Socrates presents the most beautiful and famous metaphor in Western philosophy: the allegory of the cave. This metaphor is meant to illustrate the effects of education on the human soul. Education moves the philosopher through the stages on the divided line, and ultimately brings him to the Form of the Good.

    Next, this prisoner is dragged out of the cave into the world above. At first, he is so dazzled by the light up there that he can only look at shadows, then at reflections, then finally at the real objects real trees, flowers, houses and so on. He sees that these are even more real than the statues were, and that those were only copies of these. He has now reached the cognitive stage of thought. He has caught his first glimpse of the most real things, the Forms.
