    Smilies and Metaphors

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Torana, Oct 4, 2007.

    Simile - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Metaphor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The two above links are from wikipedia to describe what a similie is and what a metaphor is.

    Below is a link that I feel gives a very basic but understandable definition of the two that anyone can understand.

    I hope that these links help you to understand the difference and relavance of the two different devices in poetry.
