Answer:

An extended metaphor is a metaphor which is used repeatedly and developed over the course of a piece of writing. Using an extended metaphor allows the author to create more depth in their story, relate plot points to one another directly, and keep the reader engaged.

Answer:

A Bildungsroman is a novel depicting one's coming-of-age or formative years. James Joyce's "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" is a Bildungsroman; the novel follows the protagonist, Stephen Dedalus, as he grows up and ponders spirituality, sexuality, and shame.
