What is a Metaphor?
A metaphor is there to make an even stronger image in the reader's head by describing a place, subject or object as something unlikely.
Examples of using a Metaphor in a sentence:
He was a speeding bullet.
A sea of trouble.
Drowning in debt.
Examples of two nouns that are compared or contract each other:
I am a rainbow.
The world is a stage.
Her eyes were glistening jewels.
Metaphors are used in poetry to create different effects, to create an image of comparison in your thoughts.
