I've missed a bit of this discussion.  Who calls "allegory" a "lower" mode, again?  The idea sounds later than Milton.

Having followed this discussion, I wonder whether or not the "lower" mode of allegory used for Sin, Death, and other entities might not be intentional: a lower poetic form for a degraded version of Creation?
