Homework Help: Literature

Posted by mysterychicken on Saturday, February 6, 2010 at 5:34pm.

I'm still having some trouble figuring out the homeric simile in this:

What a dear welcome thing life seems to children
whose father, in the extremity, recovers
after some weakening and malignant illness:
his pangs are gone, the gods have delivered him.

What two things are being comapred? Is it life, and....? Please help

Thanks
