Much More Metaphoric Madness


Can you describe temptingly low-hanging fruits as tantalising? Are all doomsayers Cassandras? Which is right, squaring the circle or circling the square? Why is the vegetative metaphor in a vegetative state today? When does the arithmetic metaphor become a good metaphor arithmetic? Is botany a metaphor for all hand-me-down knowledge? Can negative words become resonant?
Why is Eureka moment fast turning into a weasel metaphor? Yeast and dough - which is the spreading metaphor and which is the accommodating metaphor? Why shouldn't veneer be used as a respectable metaphor? Is wilderness a metaphor for the down and out? Are all harsh and severe laws draconian?
Many more metaphor questions................Many more metaphor answers................Many more metaphor stories!
Much More Metaphoric Madness is all about metaphor sanity. Alive with metaphor anecdotes, sizzling with metaphor statements from front-running publications from around the world, embellished with erudite metaphor examples from the works of imaginative writers, Much More Metaphoric Madness is both entertaining and educative. A must-read, both for learners and the learned, for students and editors-writers.
