Nature of the Beast ©Bonnie McKeegan 2017
This story was inspired by another dream. I awoke with that incessant need to write it out. As I wrote the descriptive words I had no idea what the story was about. Over the course of another day or two, the story came alive! As I struggled to describe the story briefly I searched the internet for answers. It turned out to be an allegory.
According Google Dictionary: al·le·go·ry
- a story, poem, or picture that can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning, typically a moral or political one.
- a symbol
I only remember allegory being a torturous subject in high school English Lit. My teenager brain just could not “see” what was there without the teacher pointing it out. I am still challenged by this type of story!
