  The Conqueror Worm, on a basic level, represents death, which is the finale of all our individual scenes upon the great stage of life. The Worm always triumphs in the end, feasting upon the remains of our mortal flesh. When I read the poem this morning, though, the third stanza stood out for me and I discovered symbolism I had never noticed before. 'The Conqueror Worm' can be seen as an allegory, a literary work in which the characters and events symbolize larger concepts. The most apparent of these symbols in the poem is the play itself.
