User: What is the 3 types of figurative language?

Weegy: Figurative language uses "figures of speech" - a way of saying something other than the literal meaning of the words. [ For example, "All the world's a stage" Frost often referred to them simply as "figures." Frost said, "Every poem I write is figurative in two senses. It will have figures in it, of course; but it's also a figure in itself - a figure for something, and it's made so that you can get more than one figure out of it." ]
