Figuratively Speaking

Revised Edition

Robert J. Fogelin

  • In this revised edition, Fogelin responds to the criticisms of the first edition, updates his material, and includes a new preface.
  • It accepts and defends a position modeled on Aristotle's and it goes beyond such trite examples as, "Sally is a block of ice," to examine metaphors in rich literary contexts.
