i cant believe im coming to the pit for help, but im desperate. i have to do a piece for my original writing, and my teacher has advised us to do the piece as an extreme metaphor. for those who dont know, an extreme metaphor is where a whole story is the metaphor (i think). one example we were shown was a story about a gang of kids who destroy an old house, the metaphor being youth destroys all the heritages of the elderly. anyone have any ideas? much appreciated.

It's not called an extreme metaphor It's extended metaphor.

Anyway I hated english so can't be any more help.

How about a story about kids who wreck an old house, when it means today's youth is destroying the heritage of the elderly?

i got an A* at GCSE english, and my original writing (which also got an A*) was a prologue for Of Mice And Men, which was not a metaphor for anything. so you'll be fine whatever you do as long as you write it well enough.

I had to write about an experience that fucking changed me for my damn language grade
It was so hopeless.

Maybe if I gave you an example it'd help. Here's The Flea by Donne. It's a metaphor about how if he and this woman have sex theer will be nothing to lose, they won't die, she won't lose her honour or purity of virginity. http://www.luminarium.org/sevenlit/donne/flea.php

I made up a story about playing some massive concert. Got an A*. It was probably good purely because i wrote about what I love.

well decide what you want to say, make up a story abt it, then make up a metaphor about the story you just wrote.

and i think its like an allegory, to an extent. like orwell's animal farm
