Chapter 22:

Metaphor, despite the spurious claims of Freshman English, is not comparing two things. It is explicating the behavior of one thing in order to explicate the behavior of another. It is an attempt to summon forth the light of recognition by describing the familiar, and then to shift that glow to illuminate that which needs accounting. It is with that in mind that I move to Chapter 23.

Chapter 23:

Creating art is honking a car horn. It is used to communicate many things, based on the context, and the person performing the act. It is an attempt to draw attention to a wrong. To express disgust. To cry out in anguish. Sometimes it is a celebration, or an attempt to call forth recognition in the familiar. It’s primary function though, the one thing it always does, is to say “Here I am. I am here.”
