© David Ripley, Inthinking Metaphors, similes, lies ? How do Texts A - E interact with and illuminate each other? All of the texts are related to each other because they all talk about similes and metaphors. All of the text share a similar hatred for smilies and metaphors, some like Christopher believe its just a lie and he has trouble understanding and comprehending . Other find it comprehensible, and they think some examples are irrelevant. ? Why does Christopher see metaphors and similes in relation to lies? He believes metaphors are lies since they are not literally happening. He has trouble imaging the metaphors such as 'I am veined with iron, with silver and with streaks of common mud”. He also doesn’t understand the metaphors “ I laughed my socks off.” He believe it makes him forget what the person is talking about. However, Christopher used a simile which is “ . It looked as if there were two very small mice hiding in his nostrils” . Which shows that he accepts and uses smilies but hates metaphors and believes they are lies. ? Are metaphors and similes, and lies, useful ? And if so, how and why? In Christophers point of view he sees metaphores useless and lies, he believes that metaphors make him less concentrated on what people actually say. Plus metaphors are not accurate and realistic.
