When one reads an allegory, its a question of being able to see it as allegorical, notwithstanding the intensive detail within the story.
Mythology is like that; the unrealistic, the fantastic - the magical has to be seen as indicative of transformation, from the lens of one's own life experience.
It calls for the ability to step back and see in perspective.
