wht is simile and metaphor......?
A simile is a figure of speech that directly compares two different things, usually by employing the words "like", "as". Even though both similes and metaphors are forms of comparison, similes indirectly compare the two ideas and allow them to remain distinct in spite of their similarities, whereas metaphors compare two things directly.example, a simile that compares a person with a bullet would go as follows: "Chris was a record-setting runner as fast as a speeding bullet." A metaphor might read something like, "When Chris ran, he was a speeding bullet racing along the track."
A metaphor is a literary figure of speech that uses an image, story or tangible thing to represent a less tangible thing or some intangible quality or idea; e.g., "Her eyes were glistening jewels." Metaphor may also be used for any rhetorical figures of speech that achieve their effects via association, comparison or resemblance. In this broader sense, antithesis, hyperbole, metonymy and simile would all be considered types of metaphor. Aristotle used both this sense and the regular, current sense above. With metaphor, unlike analogy, specific interpretations are not given explicitly.
in simple words :
SIMILE: IT IS A COMPARISION BETWEEN TWO DISSIMILAR THINGS , PRERSONS etc.
it can be identified by the words 'AS or 'LIKE''.
ex: she is as beautiful as rose.
METAPHOR : IT IS A COMPARISION BETWEEN TWO SIMILAR THINGS , PERSONS etc.
ex : he was a lion in the battle.
