Figurative Language III

The proverb, "The more you know, the more you can learn," reminds us that learn­ ing is often a process of fitting new ideas into the context of our current knowledge. The figurative language devices in these chapters (6, 7, and 8) enable you to construct asso­ ciations (or bridges from the familiar to the unfamiliar) that can facilitate your readers' learning process as well as provide aesthetic and imaginative qualities. Thus, these are tools of practical art.
