what is metaphor ?
Metaphor is a figure of speech which means an implied comparison made between two objects of different kinds which have however at least one point in common. They are different from simile because like similes they do not state that one thing is like another or acts as another but takes that for granted and proceeds as if the two things were one. For instance,
The camel is the ship of the desert
He was a lion in the battlefield
She was a nightingale in the concert.
#SHAKESPEARE USES METAPHOR TO EXPRESS THE OMINOUS AND UNSETTLED FEELINGS WHICH HAMLET EXPERIENCES.
METAPHOR IS ALSO USED IN POEMS.......................
