Metaphor are comparisons that show how two things that are not alike in most ways are similar in one important way. Authors use them to make their writing more interesting or entertaining. For instance:

  1. Cindy was such a male. We couldn't get her to change her mind. (The metaphor compares Cindy to a male because she was very stubborn)
  2. The poor rat didn't have a chance. Our old cat, a bolt of fighting, caught his prey. (The cat was compared to a bolt of lighting because he was very fast)
  3. Even a child could carry my dog, Dogface, around for hours. He's such a feather. (This metaphor implies that Dogface is not heavy)
