Chapter Summary

Despite the differences up between the major types of dialog, namely teaching dialogues, debates, philosophical dialogues, there are some other conversations that are also considered as dialogues. All these dialogues have some common features: weak development, lack of characterization of the figures, absence of an action, and the preferences for dialogues. This chapter discusses the cross-cutting features that some texts have. The conversations embedded in these texts have allegorical fiction. The chapter discusses five allegorical scenes, which are integrated into longer texts. They use people as a form of language representation. The dramatic allegories set in the medieval Latin literature require different texts because of their didactic value. The chapter also presents allegorical poems that represent the hassle of daughters of God or the struggle of the virtues and vices in people language. The original test of this chapter is in German. The original text of the chapter is in German.
