Example Of Figurative Language

Satisfactory Essays
An example of a simile would be, ¨he smelled clean, like the inside of a bar of soap¨ (126). The figurative language he used was powerful. Jack described a man like a bar of soap. That gives us an idea of how clean the man next to Jack was. Why does Jack describe him like the inside of a bar of soap, if soap is clean on the outside? Another example of figurative language is, ¨Brown marks appeared as if I were rotting fruit¨ (132). This example of a simile describes Jack before he goes to meet up with the attorney. It expresses the marks on his face as if they were rotting fruit. Maybe this can also be symbolism because he doesn't like the way he turned out, so he compares his life, like fruit that is rotting.
