What is a "symbolic narrative"?
I know a narrative is a story. But what exactly is a symbolic narrative?
Upon Googling, I have found that allegories and myths are symbolic narratives, but no real definition of what constitutes a symbolic narrative itself.
For some context, I have some reading comprehension exam study material and we are given a passage and asked to categorise it as a 1) logical abstraction, 2) personal reflection, 3) symbolic narrative, or 4)philosophical argument. But I can't figure out the exact meaning of symbolic narrative.
