Similes and Metaphors Poetry Review! Poetry Terms!! Topic? Theme? Imagery? Onomatopoeia? Alliteration?

Similes!! What is a simile? A comparison of two unlike items using like

or as Similes are often used as imageryto paint a picture in your head by comparing two things. Examples? Is this a simile? The newborn was like a crying baby.

She like totally was mean to me yesterday. The Baseball Field Mark Seraydarian The stadium was silhouetted against the mountains He walked in like a cat Silence The moonlight glittered on the turf He glanced at the scoreboard

But the numbers were nothing but zeroes He looked all around him Everything was as empty as the universe He looked at the big screen, Imagining himself on it He took out a ball and threw it around Dreaming that he would play in a big league game Imagining himself hitting a game-winning grand-slam The crowd roaring like a tornado The janitor picked up his broom

And the seats were empty again. Fiery fury fills my day, My head feels as soft as clay. A high-pitched piercing peal, Screaming, sensational yet surreal. My mother is like an owl. She stays up late at night Waiting for me,

Spying on me, Asking me Who? Who were you talking to? Who else was there? Who? Who? And she knows all. My mother is like braces. Yes she is a pain to deal with

But she straightens me out! Metaphor A metaphor is a comparison between two unlike things NOT using like or as; stating that something IS another thing.

Examples: My sister is a pit bull. How is a Metaphor different from a Simile?

My sister is like a pit bull. My sister is a pit bull. Jason was a beast on the basketball court. Jason was as tough as a beast on the basketball court. Which comparison is stronger? Simile? Or

Metaphor? Examples of Metaphors? Are these metaphors? My little brother is a crying baby.

School is a place of learning. Simile vs. Metaphor (Comparing things to one another) Simile Uses like or as to compare two things The puppys teeth were as sharp as needles.

The runner was fast like a cheetah. Metaphor Make a comparison by stating that the object IS another thing. The girls eyes were clear blue pools of water. The thief was a slimy cockroach. Simile or Metaphor? Jack is a tiger.

Middle school is a nightmare. Her brilliant white teeth shine like the sun. School is a prison. Homework is torture. Books are like my friends. Ogres are like onions. Interpreting Similes and Metaphors

What do they mean? Bat My son is a bat. Bat

My son is a bat. His eyes blink when darkness comes. His body stirs with life. His limbs gorge with blood As he sets out through the cave of night His roof the stars The moon a big white eye watching Attracted by the false lights He mingles with his batty friends Weaving in an out of nightclubs

Endless parties Each others places Till sensing the sudden ebb Of darkness He flutters homes A cloaked Dracula To the hollow of his room Where he will sleep all day. Interpreting Similes and

Metaphors Jack is a tiger. What two things are being compared? What does the comparison mean? Interpreting Similes and
