You are probably so utterly confused by my title and I apologize for that.

What you don't realize is that this is a big triumph for me.  I have finally figured out the difference between analogy and allusion!  Woohoo!  I always got them confused because they were both words that began with a. 

"An analogy is the comparison of a subject to something that is similar to it in order to clarify the subject's nature, purpose, or function" (Hamilton 76).

"An allusion is a passing reference in a work of literature to another literary or historical work, figure, or event, or to a literary passage" (Hamilton 74). 

There is not much to argue here, but I am happy that I got those two terms clarified.

Round Two, DING!
