Have you noticed how the more entertaining and perceptive writers are able to sprinkle their pages with sparkling analogies and metaphors? They are able to turn their gaze on any subject and make fresh connections and illuminating patterns. We learn by taking new facts and placing them on top of existing knowledge. When the connection formed is unexpected then the experience of learning becomes fun.
Analogies can stimulate us to think differently about the world. They can be either funny, shocking or profound, and sometimes all three simultaneously. The material of our favourite comedians, newspaper columnists and novelists is often based on telling analogies, which are especially memorable when new to us.
