how do’st like that metaphor?*

Need a metaphor? Can’t quite remember a famous work’s metaphor that’s on the tip of your tongue? Visit The Mind is a Metaphor database. You can search by metaphors, works and authors, or just browse for your reading pleasure. Please note that the database is still in its beta version, so you may run across quirks as it grows/refines. If you run into some frustration when searching, notice that you must “remove” search filters in the right column. If you choose to search by “animals,” for example, you will need to remove that filter if you want to start a new search.

*”Ay, on my Conscience and Soul the Palat of his Judgement is down; and by the way how do’st like that Metaphor or rather Catachresis?” (Thomas Shadwell, click here for database record)
