Much like Medusa

Read the following quote from Anthem:

"Their hair was golden as the sun; their hair flew in the wind, shining and wild, as if it defied men to restrain it."

What does the quote show?

a. simile
b. hyperbole
c. metaphor
d. symbol

Scroll down for the answer.


The correct answer is a. simile because it uses "as" to compare their hair with the golden sun.

Thanks to Jordan, Courtney, Katie, and Tykavia from Ms. Brooks class for this question.  Jordan said that Courtney also has hair golden as the sun that defies men to restrain it, but Katie and Tykavia told me that it is only because she is having a bad hair day.
