By now, you already know that a metaphor is a tool that writers can use to create a better image in the readers' minds of an idea they would like to share. A metaphor is therefore used to compare two or more objects without using the words "like" or "as". It is different from a simile , since similes do use those two words. Read the sentences below. Circle the feeling and the object that the metaphor is comparing. 1.) Greg's anger is a simmering volcano ready to erupt. 2.) My sadness when my favorite television show ended was a bottomless black hole. 3.) "Helen," her mother said, "your happiness is a bright light in my life." 4.) Sometimes, our jealousy can be a wild beast that we can't control.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
