I am not dealing with Children here. The readers I assume are well acknowledged with the species of the metaphor. I would like to mention the name of the Philosopher Aristotle who coined the name of the metaphor. According to him: “metaphor is the invention of genius”. I take his step as a predecessor. In this essay I am planning to describe the various types of metaphor. The various types metaphor are experiential metaphor, spatial metaphor, sensory metaphor and analogical metaphor. Now I would like to dissect each of these metaphors with examples and application. Now what is an experiential metaphor? Let’s work out this with an example. I would like to quote Camus work: ‘the myth of the Sisyphus’. In it a man is burdened with a rock. Each time he loads the rock on his shoulders and trudges uphill, he to his consternation is pushed down again. I would like to classify this example of a metaphor as belonging to an experiential one. Now what would be an example of a Spatial Metaphor? Let’s take Shakespeare’s example: “All the World’s a Stage.” In this the stage becomes pregnant with the reality of spatiality. Now what would be an example of a sensory metaphor? Let’s take a Bible tale. When Jesus was baptized in water by John the Baptist it was recorded in the gospels: “The holy spirit descended upon him like a dove”. This is a classic example of a sensory metaphor. Now what would be an example of an analogical metaphor? An analogy implies a comparison. For example let’s take the example of a full moon. It does represent a pregnant woman’s belly. This would be a classic example of an analogical metaphor.
