Southside Fringe: Learn the secrets of literary devices in this educational, comic presentation from Metaphoric Table creator Raymond Burke!

The Metaphoric Table

About The Metaphoric Table

Big words, bad words and big bad words. What links the Sex Pistols to Shakespeare? Or Tennyson to Trump? Learn the secrets of literary devices in this educational, comic presentation of The Metaphoric Table by its creator, Raymond Burke. Synaesthesia, synecdoche and several silly stories in the most academically pretentious show at the fringe.

The new 2019 edition of the table will be launched at The Bungo on Thursday 23rd May as part of the Southside Festival.

A must-see for readers, writers, students and all lovers of literature.
Free entry (Pay What You Like.)

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Metaphoric Table are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
