Essays on the journeys of odysseus and gilgamesh

The metaphoric, allegory and symbolic theme of the poem and short story assists readers in their cognitive and figurative visualization of the characters, their emotions, surroundings and the subliminal tone of the work. According to Gibbs, 2011, he states "My aim in this article is to explore some of the ways that everyday language reflects the allegorical impulse, as a general mode of understanding, and to offer some empirical evidence from psycholinguistics that suggests people's unreflective abilities to draw allegorical connections." (p. 122) In many respects each literary selection provides its own moral conceptualization for the reader to internalize and reflect upon their own life's experience. New concepts and perceptions are realized as the text is reviewed by the reader. Pursuant to Gibbs, 2011, "One of the reasons poetry offers us meaningful insights about our lives is because they, too often allude to enduring allegorical themes." (p. 123)
