a tool that an author uses to help the reader visualize what is happening in a story or poem. Figurative Language Some common types of figurative language are: -simile
-and sensory language. What is a simile? a comparison using like or as SHE WAS AS SWEET
AS HONEY Her voice was music to my ears. HE'S SLY AS A FOX. SHE HAS A HEART OF GOLD. HE SLEPT LIKE A A BABY. What is a metaphor? a comparison that does NOT use like or as, but
simply states that one thing IS something else YOU ARE THE APPLE OF MY EYE. Why use metaphors?
