Transcript of Final Analogies Prezi

The best friends of similes. Analogies! What is an Analogy An analogy is a comparison of
similarities between two objects
or topics which would otherwise
have nothing obviously similar to
each other. How common are these
analogy things? Analogies are very common throughout
literature as well as everyday conversating. You most likely used at least one today. Did you say something along the lines of "You're as annoying as a crying baby in the middle of the grocery store."

Well if you did then congratulations
on using an analogy. Your prize* will arrive within 3-5 business days. But Daniel, how do we spot an analogy? Hey you, find the analogy
in this block of text. Shall we try another? Dumb gorgeous people should not be allowed to use literature when competing in the pick-up pool. What power do analogies have? Analogies have a great power that must be used carefully and craftily. They can
convince a reader that two uncommon
things have many things in common. Be
weary though, if there are to few
similarities shared by your comparisons
then the use of an analogy is illogical. Analogies are useful to writers and readers.
Analogies can be very strong, which happens
when there are many similarities, or weak
when there are few similarities. No analogy
is perfect, or else it wouldn't be an analogy.
The best part of analogies is that they make
it possible to link together objects that would
for no other reason not be compared at all. Bibliography for my analogies. http://www.writingsimplified.com/2009/10/power-of-analogy.html

for the next few transition thingies we will be going over how to find analogies in text. If you want my final opinion on the mystery of life and all that, I can give it to you in a nutshell. Peter De Vries, Let Me Count the Ways http://examples.yourdictionary.com/analogy-ex.html The universe is like a safe to which there is a combination. But the combination is locked up in the safe. Last one Got you! That wasn't an analogy! - Matt McGrath from the movie Broken Hearts Club It's like bald people wearing hats. Alright this is the last one I
promise. Life is like a box of chocolates,
you never know what you're
going to get. Tom Hanks in the movie Forrest Gump Are there any illogical analogies? Of course there are. In fact a very
famous one was written by a man
named Lewis Carroll. How is a raven like a writing desk? Most scholars agree this is a very weak analogy, other then the point that Carroll "wrote on both." Which even with one
similarity the analogy is legitimate. A quick summary of analogies
sounds like a good idea.
