Which is HUNGER most like?


Analogies or comparisons

Analogies (or Comparisons)

* An analogy is a comparison of two things.  We use analogies to explain unfamiliar things by comparing them to familiar things.  For example:

  • Floating in outer space feels like going downhill on a roller coaster

  • Rhinoceros meat tastes a bit like chicken

  • High school is like middle school times two

Many consider the ability to see similarities between different things as a sign of genius.  

Great writers use this ability to bring their words to life, creating vivid, original pictures in the mind of the reader.

There was a quivering in the grass which seemed like the departure of souls.

But, look, the morn, in russet mantle clad,

Walks o'er the dew of yon high eastern hill.

Peter was utterly absorbed by the curious experience that still clung to him like a garment.

There are TWO kinds of analogies . . . 


Similes and metaphors

Similes and Metaphors

* A simile is a comparison between two things that uses the word like or as.  A simile tells you that it is comparing two things.

The morning sunshine wrapped me like a blanket

* A metaphor is an implied comparison between two things.  A metaphor doesn't tell you that it is comparing two things.

The morning sunshine wrapped me in warmth


Stevie wonder s guide to similes and metaphors

Stevie Wonder's Guide toSimiles and Metaphors

My cherie amour, lovely as a summer day

My cherie amour, distant as the milky way

My cherie amour, pretty little one that I adore

You're the only girl my heart beats for

How I wish that you were mine

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OlG2ek-wzs

You are the sunshine of my life

That's why I'll always be around, 

You are the apple of my eye, 

Forever you'll stay in my heart

Analogy identification challenge

Analogy Identification Challenge

Identify TWO similes and ONE metaphor in the following poem:

I wandered lonely as a cloud

That floats on high o'er vales and hills,

When all at once I saw a crowd,

A host, of golden daffodils;

Beside the lake, beneath the trees,

Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine

And twinkle on the milky way,

They stretched in never-ending line

Along the margin of a bay:                                

Ten thousand saw I at a glance,

Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.


Time to write

Time to Write

Choose a theme (e.g., your parents, Nachos, Fridays, Poverty, War), and write a series of analogies about it. 

    Fridays are bright spots in a forest of gloom

    Fridays sing to me

    Fridays are like scratching an itch that’s been bothering me all week

    Fridays are like the peak of a hill on a roller coaster . . . 

This kind of poem is called a * catalogue poem.  A catalogue is a long list of things.
