  11. 11. Outsiders 9­14­12.notebook September 14, 2012 Figurative Language­ Metaphors Authors often use figurative language to make their writing interesting  and more meaningful to the reader.  One type of figurative language is  the metaphor.  A metaphor, stating that one thing is the other, makes a  comparison between two unlike things.  For example, Pony describes  Dallys eyes in this way:  "His eyes were blue, blazing ice..." Dallys  eyes are being compared to ice because he looks at people coldly and  with hate. 1.  "Her words were sugar."  Her words are being compared to sugar.   What is being said about her words? 2.  "Its raining cats and dogs."  The rain is being compared to cats  and dogs.  What is being said about the rain? 3.  "He is my fortress":  To what is "He" being compared?  What is  being said about him? 11

Nothing gold can stay.   So = like, in the same way 1.  What do you think Robert Frost is trying to say? 2.  How does this poem apply to events/characters of the novel so far? (What "gold" did Ponyboy have that didnt last?) 3.  Is this supposed to be a sad poem?  What makes you think so/not? 12
  13. 13. Outsiders 9­14­12.notebook September 14, 2012 Frost makes the use of the metaphor to communicate his message about  young people.  He begins by writing that natures first green, things such  as new plants, trees, grass, and especially young people are gold.   4.  Gold is precious and expensive metal.  What comparison can be  made between "natures first green" and gold? 5.  Another metaphor in Frosts poem is "Her early leafs a flower."   Explain how natures "early leaf," or someones youth, can be like a  flower.   6.  How is the youth of someones life "gold"? 13
