SIMILE: DR. HAESHWAR ROY


QUESTION: What is Simile ?
ANSWER:Simile is an expressed comparison between two unlike objects. For this purpose' like' or 'as' are used usually.

Example: [1] O, my luve is like a red, red rose
                       That's newly sprung in June. [Burns]
                 [2] Errors like straws, upon the surface flow;
                       He that would search for pearls must dive below. [Dryden]
                 [3] True ease in writing comes from art, not chance,
                       As those move easiest who have learnt to dance. [A. Pope]
