Writing workshop

Writing Workshop

  • Figurative Language

  • Featured prominently throughout literature.


Metaphor

Metaphor

  • Comparing two unlike things (things that you would not usually associate) WITHOUT using the words “like” or “as.”

    • Example:

      • Her home was a prison.

      • “The world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players.” ~William Shakespeare.


Simile

Simile

  • Comparing two unlike things using the words “like” or “as.”

    • Examples:

      • They fought like cats and dogs.

      • Busy as a bee.

      • Blind as a bat.


Simile and metaphor

Simile and Metaphor

  • The metaphor is first cousin to the simile. Like the simile, it compares two objects but does not use like or as.

  • Simile: Her cheeks are like polished apples.

  • Metaphor: Her cheeks are polished apples.


Simile or metaphor

Simile or Metaphor

  • 1. The baby was like an octopus, grabbing at all the cans on the grocery store shelves.

  • 2. As the teacher entered the room she muttered under her breath, "This class is like a three-ring circus!"

  • 3. The giant’s steps were thunder as he ran toward Jack.

  • 4. The pillow was a cloud when I put my head upon it after a long day.

  • 5. I feel like a limp dishrag.

  • 6. Those girls are like two peas in a pod.

  • 7. The fluorescent light was the sun during our test.


Similes and metaphors

A Dream Deferred by Langston Hughes

1. What happens to a dream deferred?

2. Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun

3. Or fester like a sore and then run?

4. Does it stink like rotten meat?

5.Or crust and sugar over like a syrupy sweet?

6. Maybe it just sags like a heavy load

7. Or does it explode?

Similes and Metaphors


Personification

Personification

  • Is giving human traits (feelings, qualities, actions or characteristics) to non-human/living objects.

  • Example:

    • The clock mocked me.

    • The flowers danced in the breeze.


Personification examples

Personification Examples

  • Justice is blind and, at times, deaf.

  • The world does not care to hear your sad stories.

  • The sorry engine wheezed its death cough.

  • The buses can be impatient around here.


Personification cont d

The Sky Is Low

By Emily Dickinson

1.The sky is low, the clouds are mean,

2. A traveling flake of snow

3. Across a barn or through a rut

Debates if it will go.

4. A narrow wind complains all day

How some one treated him;

5. Nature, like us, is sometimes caught

Without her diadem.
