Cambridge Toolkit: Vocabulary & Paraphrasing for Proficiency 1


An allusion is an implied or indirect reference to something. Authors often make allusions to well-known works of literature (particularly the plays of Shakespeare), the Bible, classical mythology and famous historical events to add richness and depth to their writing. Familiarity with such allusions not only allows you to fully understand a writer's meaning but also reveals the extent of your cultural literacy: that is, how well-versed you are with the great ideas, individuals and incidents in the history of civilisation.
