Explain the difference between a simile and a metaphor. Then write two original examples of each.


Simile: While there are several specific variations of similes, in general a simile is a comparison between two unlike objects, people, ideas, etc., which uses comparative words such as "like," "as," or "than."  Example: His girlfriend is like a modern Medusa!

Metaphor: A metaphor takes a little more skill to write and to interpret.  Writers of metaphors have to be confident that their audience/readers will understand that they are using figurative language rather than literal.  A metaphor is an indirect comparison between two seemingly unlike objects, people, ideas, etc. If a metaphor stretches through several lines of poetry or sentences in prose, it is called an extended metaphor.  Example: The champion weightlifter is an ox. (Notice that there are no comparative words in the metaphor example.)
