Abstract
One of the aims of literary text is to say as much briefly as possible to convey the maximum. In other words, it aims to say more in few words to achieve a maximum effect. Metaphor, a figure of speech, has an important role, as it includes figurative meaning of words besides its literary meaning. In this article, metaphors in Arvind Adiga’s debut novel, The White Tiger have been studied to find out how they contribute to the portrayal of the perpetual intent of the author on one hand, and help the reader’s comprehension on the other.
Keywords
