Characters in a play primarily use language, not to express how they feel, but to
act.13 In other words, “poetry” in drama is not to be understood as lyric but as
verbal doing (“doing things with words,” in John Austin's famous phrase14). This
understanding of “rhetoric” in the sense of verbal doing does not violate the time-
honoured and, indeed, common designation of the term: art of persuasion. More
generally, rhetoric in the context of drama consists in the use of figurative
language, ...

... “because this is the way I intend it and I would consider myself the happiest
person in the Universe because without you at my side I wouldn't even want to be
on the earth.”73 So powerful was death in the figurative language of love—as a
means to express the strength of feelings, the sense that no earthly force could
change the way one felt about their loved one, and to emphasize the idea that
love was permanent rather than in passing—that it was not uncommon to end
love letters ...

When students are in a hurry to complete a writing assignment, they intentionally
omit colorful words, figurative language, quotes, and wise sayings because, first

... their force as examples of figurative language. In this first example of a
fragment of Archilochos, the surviving half of a couplet expresses the languid but
powerful effect of a violent erotic desire on a first-person speaker (fragment 196):

loosener subdues me, desire. Here the poet describes no6oq, "desire," with the

Yet with its highly condensed, figurative language, The Bell Jar is in many ways
as 'concentrated as any poem. Plath's poems and prose forge new patterns, as
Woolf's did before her. They make us think freshly about what subject matter and
forms can be the province of literature. We know of the anger that the narrator of
A Room of One's Own hurls at her own predecessor, Charlotte Brontë, Brontë's
crime is to write in ways that are very like Woolf's own text: with indignation', with

Consider the following possible comments made about an uninteresting person: “
He's a fireplug” (metonymic metaphor) (3.7) or “He's a jarhead” (metonymic
metaphor). (3.8) Here the metaphorical aspects can apply. A fireplug has only a
singular purpose, sits idly for most of its existence, is virtually never changing,
and thus not terribly interesting. A jar is transparent, visibly contains nothing
inside (when empty), has a very simple cylindrical shape, and thus is also
uninteresting.

The search for the perfected life has no telos, no ending, and language, which
has carried the poet to the dark fire of contemplation, finally fails as an instrument
of salvation, since it is incriminated as a device in time and history. Words or
music — the materials of art, in short — coalesce into a "pattern" that can "reach /
Into the silence," "reach the stillness" as a Chinese jar still Moves perpetually in
its stillness. (194) The jar (like Keats's urn or Stevens's jar, "Like nothing else in ...
