150 examples of Metaphors


Metaphor is a rhetorical figure in which a relation of similarity between 2 terms and some characteristic or quality that exists between both is established, it is as when we speak in two senses. In the metaphor we make poetic reference to that characteristic that we want to highlight and we say the same but in a more beautiful way.

The  metaphor  can be defined as a comparison between two terms that apparently have no relationship at all . The terms of the metaphor are different, they are in different planes and the second is the one that comes to explain the tenor of the comparison. This one has a different context and that diversity is what forms this literary figure, which writers use a lot in their poems and novels.

HeThe term “metaphor” comes from the Greek vocabulary and means “beyond” . It seems that the terms of the metaphor have no relationship, but it is very important to understand the relationship.

In the metaphor we give the object the qualities of the person or vice versa, usually directly or indirectly bear the verb to be and consists of three parts: the tenor, which is the object of which we speak, the vehicle, which is the object we use to describe to the tenor, and the foundation, which explains the similarity. There is an explicit metaphor when we include the tenor and the vehicle; if we only talk about the vehicle, then we have an implicit metaphor.
