    Default Re: is this a metaphor?

    It's a simile.

    Similies and metaphors are very similar, but the difference is that a simile compares one thing to another with "as" or "like", or something similar.

    "He was a wolf in sheep's clothing" - this is a metaphor.
    "He acted like a wolf in sheep's clothing" -- this is a simile.
