just an observationWhile reading 'Mr. Apollinax', I came upon this oblique way of comparisonwhich is akin to both a simile and a metaphor:WHEN Mr. Apollinax visited the United States
His laughter tinkled among the teacups.
I thought.../ ...of Priapus in the shrubberyGaping at the lady in the swing.Again,I heard the beat of centaur's hoofs over the hard turf
As his dry and passionate talk devoured the afternoon.I wonder if we can categorize these instances of comparisonas similes/metaphors. And if we do, to which figure of speechdo they belong?Any opinion? Thanks.CR
