Posted by Anonymous on Sun, 09/25/2016 - 05:15
No Sorry.

No its a personification because humans die not winter.
Its about describing like a human.
A metaphor is saying about something but actually it isnt that or like it.
Hope you understand bye.

Suggest a metaphor

What is a good metaphor for "weighing a million tons"?

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 05/25/2016 - 16:06
Actually

That would actually be a hyperbole which is an exaggeration of something, while the cow doesn't actually weigh a million tons or whatever, it does weigh a good amount.

metaphor

I would like to know if this is a metaphor:

And sing a song of GRAY.

Here gray is not referring to the color but to the feeling of sadness. So, would "gray" be a metaphor?

Is this a metaphor

My mind is the photographer of my life.

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 04/06/2016 - 01:08
Yes, it is

At least I think so. You're comparing your mind to a photographer without using 'like' or 'as', so I think it is.

To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 03/22/2016 - 16:59
It could be a metahor

If you are not actually talking about a nation. If you are using 'nation' as a metaphor for something else like a company, school, family, any other unified grouping of people which is not a nation, or even a nation of animals, then yes, it is a metaphor.

However, if you are actually talking about a nation, then as the last person said, this is a statement, not a metaphor.
