'An idea is a feat of association, and the height of it is a good metaphor' - Robert Frost. 'It is metaphor above all else that gives clearness, charm and distinction to the style' - Aristotle. Throughout history, great minds have demonstrated a special ability to ingeniously and creatively find a relationship between things that initially seem quite alien to each other. This talent was recognised as early as 2500 years ago by Aristotle. Metaphors may be the most versatile tool in the toolbox of a person who is trying to express a powerful idea. In this book, linguistic specialist Grothe discusses the use of metaphor in a wide variety of life settings. He presents metaphors in life altering situations; about the human condition; in wit and humor; insults and criticism; relationships; love; marriage; sex; stages and ages of life; stage and screen; politics; sports; and, the literary life.
