Figurative language is the language which is in the form of metaphors or symbols. The words which the writer or the poet uses do not reflect the actual meaning but rather something else which is deeper. e.g. in the poem The Human Seasons, Keats is mentioning the four seasons of the year, but deeper, the words rather refer to the four stages of human life. 1 Login to Reply Share Share Share on WhatsApp Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Sorry, you do not have a permission to answer to this question.
