Chapter Summary

This bibliography presents a list of reference books and articles relevant to the study of the extant research on metaphor. The word "metaphor" comes from the Greek metaphora, derived from meta meaning "over" and pherein, meaning "to carry". The study of metaphor customarily begins with Aristotle and his statement in The Poetics that "metaphor is the transference of a term from one thing to another: whether from genus to species, species to genus, species to species, or by analogy".

Keywords: Aristotle; Greek; metaphor
