The most entertaining and instructive book ever written about the art of linguistic comparisons. Farnsworth's book collects the most eloquent examples, arranges them by theme, and provides the historical and cultural backdrops that inspired their use. He offers specific accounts of where metaphors originate, how they have been and can be used and why they work. Along the way, the books provides an extraordinarily wide-ranging tour of actual usage--specific examples from novelists, playwrights, philosophers, and orators. There is interest, instruction, and amusement to be found on every page.
