Metaphor

Kipling has some terrific metaphors. I think Orwell would like this one in particular:

"Now a break in a railway system produces much the same effect as a break in a word or a lizard. The two sundered sections grow exceedingly lively."

Thanks for commenting on my site, and for reading. It's always good to know that someone is reading :-)

I did take the GRE this past December, and I am thinking about graduate school in English, but I haven't really begun researching programs yet. I'm a little hesitant and not as confident as I'd like to be, so I'm holding back. I mainly wanted to take the test now while I had a steady, non-demanding job and would have plenty of time to study. It worked out pretty well.

So are you in graduate school now? Do you mind my asking where? I'm very curious to know how you like your program, what you're studying, etc.

Thanks again,

T

I want to talk about this in relation of metacognition...

Okay, not really. I just like to type "metacognition."
