Farnsworth's Classical English Metaphor

£9.99

Sorry, this item is now out of stock.

In this sequel to his book on rhetoric, Farnsworth uses carefully selected examples to illustrate how metaphorical comparisons can convey feeling, thoughts and ideas where the range of literal words fails. Aptly described as 'devised for the wandering reader', the book presents examples of metaphor and simile, usually only one sentence long and arranged by topic, with final chapters of examples that show the various ways in which similes and metaphors are constructed.
