CONCEPT APPLICATION: METAPHOR “A metaphor is a figure of speech in which a point is made about one thing by substituting something else that demonstrates a particular quality of the first in a dramatic way”
CONCEPT APPLICATION: METAPHOR A song “History” that Jay-Z wrote after President Obama won the 2008 presidential election and performed it at one of the inaugural balls. It sustains a metaphor throughout the song which never breaks. It’s a song that talks about victory and success and history in the largest, communal sense, but it does it, through metaphors and deeply personal storytelling. Song Chorus: Now that all the smoke is gone And the battle's finally won Victory is finally ours History so long so long, so long
