Literary Lingo

It’s time for some Literary Lingo.

Today’s word is:¬†Apologue

¬†A moral fable, usually featuring personified animals or inanimate objects which act like people to allow the author to comment on the human condition. Often, the apologue highlights the irrationality of mankind. The beast fable, and the fables of Aesop are examples. Some critics have called Samuel Johnson’s Rasselas an apologue rather than a novel because it is more concerned with moral philosophy than with character or plot.
