What is an allusion in ”The Good Life” By Tracy K. Smith

947 views

”When some people talk about money

They speak as if it were a mysterious lover
Who went out to buy milk and never

Came back, and it makes me nostalgic

For the years I lived on coffee and bread,

Hungry all the time, walking to work on payday

Like a woman journeying for water

From a village without a well, then living

One or two nights like everyone else

On roast chicken and red wine.”
