Let’s learn the difference between a metaphor & a simile
A metaphor is a figure of speech that directly compares one thing to another for rhetorical effect.
A metaphor is often poetically saying something is something else.
It is a figure of speech wherein a word or phrase represents an object or idea that is used instead to show the likeness between the two.
A simile is a figurative statement that uses connecting words.
Unlike metaphors, similes create a comparison using like and as.
A simile is saying something is like something else.
