      Metaphors are direct comparisons of unlike objects, actions or concepts. Unlike similes, metaphors don't include words such as "like" or "as." Poet Robert Frost defined metaphors as "saying one thing and meaning another," which is something many people do without thinking about it. metaphor [Gr.,=transfer], in rhetoric, a figure of speech in which one class of things is referred to as if it belonged to another class. Whereas a simile states that A is like B, a metaphor states that A is B or substitutes B for A. Some metaphors are explicit, like Shakespeare's line from As You Like It: "All the world's a stage."A metaphor can also be implicit, as in Shakespeare's Sonnet.

    An extended metaphor is a metaphor that is continued into the next sentence and throughout a section of text. Several poems use extended metaphors and Shakespeare and Frost used it in their pieces. - Explore staterdlibrary's board "Metaphor, picture books to teach", followed by people on Pinterest.
