Metaphor is a type of analogy, and is often mistaken with simile. The difference between metaphor and simile is that a simile includes “like” or “as” in the comparison (for example: “O my luve’s like a red, red rose), whereas metaphor is an assertion of the comparison without modifiers or conjunctions. One prominent member of the class of figurative language is the idiom. Figurative language, including metaphor, sarcasm, and exaggeration, differs from literal language in that it’s words connote an extra layer of meaning. These words add richness, complexity, and sometimes confusion to a language. Idioms change rapidly compared to other words.
Figurative use of language is the use of words or phrases that implies a non-literal meaning which does make sense or that could [also] be true.  Aristotle and later the Roman Quintilian were among the early analysts of rhetoric who expounded on the differences between literal and figurative language.
