2 Metaphor vs. Simile

3 Simile A simile is a comparison between two things using like and as. Similes are often used in poems to emphasize a point. Instead of saying “He ran quickly”. He ran as fast as a cheetah.

4 Common Similes "I feel as old as dirt" "You are as slow as molasses" "She was as white as a ghost". “He ran like the wind”

5 Metaphor Makes a comparison between seemingly unlike things without “like” or “as”. Example: “This room is an Oven!” Do I mean that this classroom is an oven? Turn to your partner and tell him/her what I really mean.

6 Common Metaphors The crowd began to simmer down. -Heat is activity, and activity is heat. A recipe for disaster. -A disaster is the finished product of bad ingredients and processes. She had a raw talent for music. -Talent is only potential, and must be developed (cooked).
