Composition's Misunderstanding of Metaphor.
Seitz, James
College Composition and Communication, v42 n3 p288-98 Oct 1991
Contemplates whether writers will continue to use metaphor occasionally for stability and clarity, or whether they will become self-conscious about the metaphors in use and seek to pluralize the field. Suggests the field might demonstrate self-reflexivity or irony about its own discourse, so that like metaphor, its very structure vibrates in a paradoxical tension. (PRA)
