Summary "Eyes Like Butterflies is a treasury of memorable and resonant similes and metaphors taken from modern English literature. The thousands of images collected in this book are arranged by theme and range from the charming ('pillow-fighting clouds') to the startling ('the eyes of a Belsen stoker'). It will be a source of reference and inspiration for creative writers, but it will mainly be read for the sheer delight to be found in the inventiveness and brilliance of its contents."--Publisher's website.
