Shakespeare’s metaphors are “the paragon of creativity” (e.g., There’s daggers in men’s smiles, Love is smoke made with the fume of sighs). They are very hard to invent, which is one reason Shakespeare is regarded as a literary genius. (Hawkins, Jeff, with Sandra Blakeslee. On Intelligence. NY: Owl Books, 2004, pp 186-187)
