Conceit

A Lesson by Thomas Fitzgerald

Conceit Poetry Type is where an image or metaphor likens one thing to something else that is seemingly very different. Poets often use a far-fetched simile or metaphor in this style. An example of a conceit can be found in Shakespeare's Sonnet 18 "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?".

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date.
