What about Metaphors in "The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Other Stories" Written by Ernest Hemingway
Journal of Education and Practice, v6 n8 p148-153 2015
It is discovered plenty of various interesting metaphors in the book of "The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Other Stories" which were written by Ernest Hemingway. By the metaphorical expressions, one can describe everything much more expressively, imaginatively, effectively, and poetically. Each of the metaphors has always a specific style and must have a complex grammatical structure. Each metaphor always has two terms which are called the tenor and vehicle. The two terms are "the thing we are talking about and that to which we are comparing it". It makes listeners or readers pay attention to the metaphor well when they want to understand its sense.
