@Mammmood - I like the literary conceit over the simple metaphor. Conceits are kind of strained, and somewhat tortured metaphors, and their complexity often makes you think.
I believe that conceits are in that sense, more “intellectual” as much as they are artistic, reflecting a lot about the author’s view of the world and not just his penchant for the poetic.
I, too, studied the metaphysical poets, and found that these writers wrote about a world of ideas and philosophies, and yet made them understandable by using conceits and metaphors. I wish we had more of that kind of poetry, frankly, which forces people to really think about the world around them.
