I would say so, yes.


It can be interpreted many different ways. One that I have heard most often is that it's an allegory for the Bible or has many different Biblical themes. But, yeah. Long story short, since it can be interpreted and has hidden meanings depending on the person reading it, I would say it is an allegory.
