Can someone give me an example of a metaphor?


Is a mouse in front of the yawning maw of a python, a metaphor?


Sorry, I wrote the question wrong.!!!

----------------------------------------------------


Is He's paralyzed, a mouse in front of the yawning maw of a python, a metaphor?





Yes, because "He" is being compared to the mouse, and his paralysis is being compared to the fear he feels in front of the python's mouth.

Metaphors are just comparisons ... WITHOUT USING "LIKE" OR "AS."

=)


Thanks so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
