    • Abstract:
      This article focuses on the use of metaphors in lyric poetry. According to the author, when poets make language out of sensation, they reach across the boundaries between them and other people. The author admits that, as a poet, she turns intentionally toward metaphor when she seek to represent the world through her works. The success of metaphor depends on essential difference, and that, to make metaphor is to insist on a necessary error. A theory by Daniel Dennett states that people construct identity around the stories they tell about themselves, and to themselves.
