is this a metaphor? how?

“ He dived into their eyes and dragged up sneers.”

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 04/15/2013 - 10:25
It was as if he had dived

It was as if he had dived into their eyes and as if he had dragged up sneers - had the as if been added it would have been a simile. Without the as if it is a metaphor.

Example of a Metaphor?

"We have become wild beasts". This is from All Quiet on the Western Front and I'm not sure if it's a metaphor or what it is.

wild beasts are a metaphor.

wild beasts are a metaphor. it means soldiers became ruthless, bloodthirsty and all other characteristics that you can attribute to wild beasts.

Is this a metaphor

This ship will carry our bodies safe to shore
(as in, ship=death and shore= heaven)

Posted by Anonymous on Sun, 03/03/2013 - 22:35
Symbolism

That would be symbolism. This is because in this case, the ship symbolizes death and the shore symbolizes heaven. It wouldn't be a metaphor because it isn't comparing two things in the sentence. An example is, "Her body was a ship that carried us safe to shore".

"the sunlight would flap out like a quickly opened fan"

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 10/16/2012 - 23:24
No.

This is a simile as it uses "like" to compare the aforementioned sunlight to a quickly opened fan.

what is this?

his gray eyes were so colorless i thought he was blind

Posted by Anonymous on Thu, 08/02/2012 - 01:55
hyperbole

it is an exaggeration, or hyperbole, if it even is a rhetorical device at all; "i" may actually have thought he was blind, but if "i" clearly seems to know he is not blind, i would go with hyperbole
