Similes in the poem EVEN PAST FIFTY BY SHANTA SHELKE
EVEN PAST FIFTY Shanta Shelke She’s past fifty; yet she’s still a little girl at heart, for whom the house is a doll’s house, and running the household a childhood game. She has travelled a long road; but her little feet are not yet fatigued. Catastrophes to her are still like the evil spirits in children’s stories whom she fights with blades of grass; wipes the sweat from her brow; hits hard; sometimes wins, sometimes loses, her sword broken.
simile CATASTROPHES TO HER ARE STILL LIKE THE EVIL SPIRITS IN CHILDREN’S STORIES
Difficult questions she has simplified for herself; fitted the tangle into a simple frame; on her face she has made distaste smile, like moonlight that makes everything smooth. But sometimes totally in despair, a flower crumpled in a fist, she rises again, smiles, or sings to herself, though hers is not a musical voice. I saw her the other day after a long time; she talked with her usual, irrepressible intensity; but i, for the first time, noted the hair fast becoming white, noted, for the first time, and with a pang, the hollowness of the froth rising above the stream of her life
simile • SHE HAS MADE DISTASTE SMILE, LIKE MOONLIGHT THAT MAKES EVERYTHING SMOOTH
Catastrophes to her are still like the evil spirits in children’s stories The figure of speech here is simile The woman in the poem takes her catastropes that is difficulties of life like evilspirits Her difficulty is likened to evil spirits in children's stories
‘She has made distaste smile, Like moonlight that makes everything smooth.’ The figure of speech here is simile. The woman in the poem conceals her distaste that is surfacing in her heart. ‘She smiles , when she is not happy’. Her smile is likened to moonlight.
