I accidentally came across

EDMUND SPENSER's
THE FAERIE QUEENE

and after reading several pages (free ebook) I downloaded and read all night and skipped sleeping.

The next day i share with one of my muses and she got all excited with the Allegory.

Got me thinking...........how many read to discover the treasures hidden beneath allegory?

I love everything about this epic (216 pages) poem and it's in olde English and I love that, as well.
The allegory part I'll be rereading for days and while understanding.....formulating my own thoughts.

Anyways, just sharing with You all what i often do when I skip sleeping a night or 2 or 3 or. . .

Still taking notes Tallen!

Thought I'd share another allegory, this time it's Plato's Cave.

After reading i am pretty certain i saw a movie based on this.
It reads so super familiar to me.
I also think this story was introduced to me back in Kaahumanu Elementary School in the 5th grade.  (my first intro to the worlds of Philosophy and Psychology)
