A metaphor is a literary device used to say something is something else. It allows the reader to do further interpretation. For example, “Life is a mountain.”


1. Compares two objects with connecting words2, Generally a shorter comparison, like in a single sentence 3. More simple and basic than an analogy


1. Creates a relationship based on similarities between two ideas2. Generally a longer comparison, more than a sentence 3. More elaborate or extensive than a simile

An analogy is a comparison between two things with the goal to make a larger point. For example, “Life is like a mountain. Hard to climb, but the view at the top is worth it.” This further explanation, stated or not, is what distinguishes an analogy. Metaphors and similes can be used within an analogy to drive the point home.
