Metaphor in Literature- Poets.org - Poetry, Poems, Bios & More: ""Unless you are at home in the metaphor ... you are not safe anywhere." —Frost, "Education by Poetry"
Metaphor is everywhere. Our daily language is full of metaphors we all day unthinkingly use for regular communication purposes. Cell phone. Highway. Light bulb. Love affair. War on Terror. Many have argued that every word is a metaphor, and/or that metaphorical thinking is what allows us to structure reality at all, and therefore can easily filter and determine our thinking and perceptions if we are not aware of it.
Most great thinkers, philosophers, literary theorists, and writers have eventually turned their thoughts to the question of metaphor and how it determines our basic structures of language, thought, perception. Of course metaphor is a particular concern of writers and literary theorists. Almost all of them have something to say on the subject."
