As seen in lines such as 'Still like Air, I 'll rise ' and ' But still, like dust, I 'll rise ' Angelou uses similes to compare herself to air and dust. The use of similes allows the reader to link an idea they are familiar thus allowing them to relate to the poem.

Spiegelman has said that the metaphors are meant to “self-destruct”. He regularly plays with anthropomorphized characters interacting with their animal counterparts and has characters wear masks of other ‘races’. In his article about the oral history of Maus, Graham Smith showcases how using animals was used as a distancing effect(pg 29). The primary use of images within comics and graphic novels, such as Maus, forces the reader to acknowledge the events depicted graphically, on the page, whereas in prose novels readers are left to their imaginations. The graphic nature of Maus forces readers to acknowledge images of the Holocaust, calls “closure” within the
Images help the reader connect to the imaginary world within the literary work; especially powerful imagery is a way for the reader to be drawn in through their own experiences. Images also help the writer to establish mood and tone. Along with simile and metaphor, personification, and symbol, imagery is a type of figurative language. These other forms of figuration are often present in images.
Authors use figurative language to engage their readers and make their story more convincing or interesting. Authors also use it to help add mood fluency and imagery to their books.

“His eyes would suddenly go blank leaving two gaping wounds, two wells of terror” (Wiesel 75), is a rousing example of the horror Elie Wiesel portrays in Night by using imagery. Elie uses layers of figurative language to help facilitate the meaning of the text beyond its literal interpretation and enhances the reader's experience. Not only does his use of figurative language produce vivid imagery to draw in readers, it also accurately portrays his primary account of the dismay he experienced during the holocaust. Night is filled with wonderfully descriptive figurative language to elevate the effect and take the reader on Wiesel’s painfully haunting and incomprehensible journey. Likewise, in the novel Night, Elie portrays his firsthand
