4.  Grendel Chapter 2:  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1iqkzRExTTXE9OtMyCq4xh-HeD120fR1Zdj_woQaZzSg/edit?usp=sharing

Allegory of the Cave: 

Allusion Notes:  Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave”

·   People lived chained as prisoners in a cave facing a wall.

·   All that they can see are shadows of things that pass behind them.

·   The shadows become the prisoners’ reality.

·   One man escapes and leaves the cave.  He goes into the real world and is able to “see.”

·   He returns to the cave to enlighten and save the other prisoners.

·   The prisoners resist being freed from the cave and their “blindness.”

·   Plato uses this to suggest that people cannot escape our bondage.  We prefer blindness over seeing the reality of life.

·   Plato suggests that Philosophers are the “freed prisoner” and the rest of us are blind.
