Simile Questions and Answers (Q&A)

Simile is used when the author wants to simply make a comparison. They use like or as to do this. “Red as a rose” is often used to describe a woman’s lips, while “strong as an ox” is a good quality for a prince to have. A simile describes a trait that someone has, and is usually given as an image that can be taken literally.

A metaphor, on the other hand, means that something is standing in for something or someone else. “A lion’s heart,” for example, means that person is very brave. They don’t actually have a lion’s heart. If you say there’s an army of children, unless this is a military thriller, there’s not an actual army of children; there’s a lot of them!

Metaphor...obviously. This is because it is comparing two objects (not anything nature) and does not use the word like or as.

You could. It wouldn’t be the best thing to do, though. Simile and metaphor work in very different ways. There is a time when a simile is useful, and times when a metaphor would be useful. Putting them in the same sentence is overkill. It’s like trying to tell someone they’re pretty, cute, adorable, and beautiful all in one night. They’ll get sick of your compliments pretty quickly, and they’ll think you’re trying to butter them up.

Using simile and metaphor in the same sentence will make people think you’re trying too hard. These are like sprinkles. If you put sprinkles on your ice cream, it’s nice. If you put too many on your ice cream, it’s overly sweet and you don’t want to finish it.

A similie is a comparison using the words 'like' or 'as' to make the comparison. Similes are often used in literature as a way of comparing two things or ideas so that the reader can get a better understanding of what the writer is trying to get across.

An example of a simile might be something like the statement: "her hair yellow hair was like the burning sun" or "his voice was loud as a train whistle." Both of these statements compare one thing to another either using the words 'like' or 'as.' Similes can often enrich writing and paint a more complete picture of whatever the writer is trying to describe. Well used similies will help the reader to better visualize and understand exactly what
the writer is trying to make them see through their writing.
