Literary Devices (Metaphors)

What are Metaphors

A metaphor is a poetic device that describes an object or an action in a way that is not exactly true but gives an idea or makes a comparison.
It may appear a little strange as their literal interpretation is entirely different from the actual meaning.
You must have read Shakespeare’s famous poem all the worlds a stage. He opens the poem with a metaphorical expression.

All the world’s a stage 
And All the men and women merely player’s

Her eyes were fireflies: 

This means her eyes shone and sparkled.

The kids were monkeys on the jungle gym:

Means they were jumping and swinging like monkeys.
