Bidirectionality and Metaphor
Journal Issue Pages: 216 Volume 38, Number 1 Published: March 2017 An issue of Poetics Today

Contributors to this issue discuss bidirectionality in metaphor from the perspective of various disciplines—semiotics, linguistics and psycholinguistics, cognitive psychology, computer science, and literary criticism. Its objectives are fivefold: to set out the intellectual history of the concept of bidirectionality; to demonstrate the interdisciplinarity of current scholarship and research in metaphor; to highlight different methods of research; to analyze bidirectionality with respect to visual metaphor, verbal metaphor, and adjacent phenomena such as simile, synesthesia, and analogy; and to chart out paths for future research based on the scholarship presented here.
