    As you read through that essay, take notes on phrases and perhaps sentences that contain unusual or interesting ways of describing things or people or ideas.

    Then read through the items in several of these websites to find names for what you have made notes of. Sometimes you'll find them; sometimes you won't. One thing to keep in mind, for example, is that what seem like simple comparisons could be similes or metaphors, depending on how they're phrased.

    Let us know what you come up with.
