Thread: Teach me Metaphor

    When described, perhaps we should STOP.
    That is very heartless of you Sir. To do so would mean the foreclosure of mortgages, hungry families on welfare, dumping an entire demographic. What happens to all those high schoolteachers , professors, lecture room cleaners, secretaries who depend upon continued discussion.

    It also seems prescriptive, must the description remain constant? Is there no room for change or development. I don't think that is in the nature of language.

    I must disagree factually, emotionally and philosophically, and maybe a couple more -lly's, emphatically? Confrontationally? Unbelieviabally?

    A new story

    I finally got 'A Family Business' recorded and loaded, all 37 mins of it, much longer than any I have done before.

    Dammit! Meant to conclude my last post with :

    followed by some ho-ho stuff about the absurdity of muffling a bunch of poets with the bit between their teeth, then concluding the post with this as the result of getting just too too, too . . .on certain topics. Mea Culpa for hitting Post before the funny bits.


    "I believe in nothing but the holiness of the heart's affections and the Truth of the imagination". Keats, ​Letters

    "No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main . . . any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls -- it tolls for thee. " John Donne, Meditation XVII

    The types of cups found in a tool box are limited. A good guess will lead her to the right tool. The metaphor is relevant to content through figurative narrative. Meaning on the other hand is derived from the other individual and not from the art object. The art object only instills through the inner process of evoking the other individual. Hence the arts are the Humanities.
