Today we are going to examine metaphors from a few angles.

First, we are going to identify and explain a metaphor from Quentin Tarantino’s film Django Unchained.

Next, we are going to identify and explain a metaphor from Run-DMC & Aerosmith’s music video for “Walk this Way.”

Finally, we are going to explore the significance of a metaphor in J.D. Salinger’s novel The Catcher in the Rye.

In all three examples, our writing will be grounded in clear and concise statements about the function of the metaphor in the selected work.
