Transcript of THE EXTENDED METAPHOR

SO WHAT?
HOW?
WHY?
WHAT?
What is an "EXTENDED METAPHOR"?
A
metaphor that continues over multiple sentences
, and that is sometimes extended throughout an entire work.
Why do writers use the EXTENDED METAPHOR?
To allow the audience to
visualize a complex idea
in a more memorable or tangible way
To draw a
larger comparison
between two things or ideas
To
highlight a comparison
in a more intense way than simple metaphors or similes.
WARNING: Don't over do it!
THE
METAPHOR
So... what's a METAPHOR?
A figure of speech that

makes an implied comparison between two unlike things

that actually have something in common.
FOR EXAMPLE:

How does this improve the original metaphor?
Two examples of the
EXTENDED METAPHOR:
But soft! What light through yonder window breaks?
It is the East, and Juliet is the sun!
Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,
Who is already sick and pale with grief (2.2. 3-6)
Josh always knew, on some level, that it was possible for him to get traded. He’d seen it happen to dozens of guys over the years, including some of his closest friends. It was part of the game. Still, he had never been traded himself, and he was having some trouble accepting it. He kept expecting someone to tap him on the shoulder and tell him the whole thing was a joke.

“Here’s your stuff,” Kate said, dropping a duffelbag at his feet. “Goodbye.”

Josh stared at her for a moment, expecting some kind of encouragement or sympathy. But Kate just stood there, her eyelids fluttering with impatience.

“So that’s it, then,” Josh said. “After three and a half years.”

“What do you want me to say?” Kate snapped.

He picked up the bag and slung it wearily over his shoulder. There was nothing he could do. When your girlfriend decides to trade you, you’re through.

Thanks for watching!
Bobby Holloway says my imagination is a three-hundred-ring circus.
Currently I was in ring two hundred and ninety-nine, with elephants dancing and clowns cart wheeling and tigers leaping through rings of fire. The time had come to step back, leave the main tent, go buy some popcorn and a Coke, bliss out, cool down.
When used poorly, the original message of the statement can become lost, and the writing can become overbearing and even annoying.
bibliography:
“Their heart was icy, their blood frosty, their ventricles filled with icicles, their words turning to ice cubes that would chill an already chilly iced tea.”

But soft! What light through yonder window breaks?
It is the East, and
Juliet is the sun
