We’ll finish Act I in class today the focus our attention on the metaphor.
A metaphor is a figure of speech that describes a subject by asserting that it is, on some point of comparison, the same as another otherwise unrelated object.
The plant in our play is a metaphor for the family’s well-being. In Act I it’s not looking great. Mama is watering it but it doesn’t get enough light in the window. It’s also mentioned that it has a dreary view of the outside. Mama would love to have a garden to plant it in.
