"He wore his happiness like a mask and the girl had run off across the lawn with the mask and there was no way of going to knock on her door and ask for it back."
Is the part "he wore his happiness like a mask" a simile?

It is a simile. You are comparing two things (happiness and the mask) with using the word like. Hoped this helped you!

Simile or metaphor?

The very law that condemned her—a giant of stern features, but with vigor to support, as well as to annihilate, in his iron arm—had held her up, through the terrible ordeal of her ignominy

help!

what literary device is "a roar of laughter"

Posted by Anonymous on Sun, 09/15/2013 - 21:43
possibility

an idiom that uses onomatopoeia to convey meaning of something; most likely to show the pride and power of the people who laughed, and the undesired effect that the "roar of laughter" may create on the people who was laughed at.

Metaphor

Metaphor it compares the volume of the laughter to a roar. A roar is a steadily increasing loud noise that covers great distances and fills air spaces with resounding sound.

Is this a simile?

another shower of paper cylinders has covered the desk like a snowdrift.. Is that a similie?

Posted by Anonymous on Sun, 01/06/2013 - 21:07
Yes!

"like a snowdrift", they're comparing the amount of paper cylinders to a snow drift covering the desk.

Helpful trick

I often get confused with the difference between a simile and a metaphor, so my teacher taught us a helpful trick to remember what a simile is.

I am a simile, look at my as.

This doesn't exactly describe what it is, but it is a helpful little trick.

Yes

dude, I love you. perfect trick xD

simile?/Idiom?

is "As the crow flies" considered a simile or a idiom? Or both?

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 08/28/2012 - 03:56
Depends on Context

If it means the "while" form of "as" then it is not a simile (e.g. He is sleeping as/while the crow flies.)

If it is a comparisons, then it is a simile (e.g. He sleeps as well as the crow flies.)

yes, the "you lie" song

yes, the "you lie" song lyrics are similes.

You Lie

If anyone has heard the song "You Lie" by The Band Perry, are the choruses similes?

"You lie like a priceless Persian rug on a rich man's floor"
"You lie like a coon dog basking in the sunshine on my porch"
"You lie like a penny in a parking lot at the grocery store"

"You lie like the man with the slick back hair who sold me that Ford"
"You lie like the pine tree in the back yard after last month's storm"

Are those considered similes?

Thanks!!!
