Levison/Eng.  411   FIGURATIVE LANGUAGE SIMILES and METAPHORS A simile  is a comparison  that uses the words  like  or as .     (or as if , as though ) e.g.  Studying  for that class was as  difficult as  wrestling someone.   My boss yelled like a lion  when  he saw me come in late. How  do we understand  these similes?  Think about what wrestling  means  literally .  Wrestling someone  is difficult. You  physically struggle with  someone  till one of you wins. Studying  for that class  was difficult. Trying to understand  the material was so hard  that it felt as if you  were physically fighting  with  the material and  struggling  to win. A lion is fierce and  makes a big, angry  sound  when  he roars. When  my boss  yelled at me it reminded  me of a lion roaring  because my boss yelled so loudly   and  angrily. Exercise One
