Metaphors Are Magic (Just Ask the Elephant in the Room)

The art of the metaphor – Jane Hirshfield is an incredibly fun look at the magical powers of metaphors and the simpler, yet superhuman, nature of similes. Narrated by Jane Hirshfield and animated by Ben Pearce for TED-Ed, this video is spectacular both in its art style and in the completely delightful ways the animation and the narration play with each other.

If you enjoyed this, you should definitely watch more TED-Ed videos.
