Write a TWO PAGE thoughtful analysis of Plato's "Allegory of the Cave." It is a deep metaphor, and there are many ways to interpret it. Here are some reminders: There is no right answer to this, but you need to back up what you say by pointing to specifics in the text. For example, if you say, "I think Plato is talking about bananas here," you need to show what in the metaphor made you think that (Hint: not about bananas). This is a very commonly discussed text which means you will find ample writings about it on the internet. Feel free to read those if they help to clarify things for you or give you ideas (the Wikipedia entry isn't bad), but do not be tempted to cut and paste or otherwise plagiarize work you find. I will know, and you just don't want to get in the habit of plagiarizing. Remember this should be in proper MLA format, include a unique title (not "Allegory of the Cave" or Analysis of "Allegory of the Cave") Remember you are also welcome to include images, memes, or GIFs at the bottom of your papers going forward.
