|NOTES||Literary device based on the Latin word, allusio, meaning 'a play on words', used to insinuate, suggest, or provide indirect reference to a person, event, thing, or part of another text. Allusions are distinguished from devices such as direct quote or imitation and are based on the assumption that a body of knowledge and cultural understanding is shared by the author and reader.|
