Metaphors Dictionary by Elyse Sommer

Book Description

A masterful metaphor, like a picture, may be worth a thousand words. By comparing two unlike objects or ideas, it illuminates the similarities between them, accomplishing in a word or phrase what could otherwise be expressed only in many words, if at all. "Metaphors Dictionary" is an expansive collection of 6,500 colorful classic and contemporary comparative phrases (with full annotations and a complete bibliography of sources). "The Metaphors Dictionary" revisits most of the great and respected names in the annals of cultural literacy while dipping into current literature and media sources. And now available for the first time in hard cover, it's bound for heavy duty at a price that's hard to beat.

Buy Metaphors Dictionary book by Elyse Sommer from Australia's Online Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
