what is the difference between similie and metaphor

Oct 22nd, 2014

A simile is a phrase that describes something in comparison to the characteristics of something else, usually using the words like or as. A metaphor on the other hand directly compares two things which may be quite different, because one has a characteristic that is similar to the other. It usually uses linking verbs such as is, are, was or were. An example of  similes are : He is as sneaky as a weasel and Her teeth are like pearls.
examples of metaphors include:his eyes were glowing coals.
