Figurative Language: Recipes for Mouthwatering Prose - A Two-Part Class
Metaphor, simile, personification, metonymy - big words for delicious writing. Because they appeal to the senses, figures of speech lead your reader to taste, feel and see what you're writing about and thus provide deeper understanding. In this class you'll practice using descriptive, abstract and embedded metaphors. You'll learn how to avoid cooking up the wrong combination of ingredients so that you can serve up a gourmet meal instead of mush. And you'll sample some delectable prose from amazing writers.
