What are the similarities and differences between a metaphor and a simile?
Both are figures of speech, and they both compare two different things. The simile uses “like” or “as” while the metaphor does not. Ex. “Life was like a box of chocolates” from movie Forrest Gump is a simile; “My mother is a fish” from As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner is a metaphor.
