In my notes for Macbeth, I have the quote "Turn, hell hound, turn!" said by Macbeth. I have an annotated note beside it saying 'demonic religious allusion'. What does allusion mean in this context?

an allusion is when you make a reference to something, usually indirectly. in this instance you're stating that Macbeth is alluding/referring to religious and demonic imagery to convey his point (although I'd personally say that Hellhound is more of a mythological creature figure than a religious one)

Yeah, I agree. I think I was just copying down what my teacher said. :rolleyes:
