Allusions An allusion is a reference to a well-known person, place, event, literary work, or work of art. Many allusions are only a phrase in length. Sometimes, however, they can provide structure for a piece of writing. In "Declaration of Sentiments," Elizabeth Cady Stanton creates an extended allusion by modeling her argument, which builds to a call for action, after the Declaration of Independence. Throughout the document, she alludes to the wording from that iconic declaration to provide additional force to her own. Use this chart to analyze how allusions to the Declaration of independence help introduce, develop, and conclude the argument made in the "Declaration of Sentiments." A first example has been done for you.
