Lakoff and Turner (1989) have claimed that poetic metaphors are based on everyday metaphors and what distinguishes the two is that the former combine and elaborate the latter in ways that go beyond the ordinary. A number of studies have lent support to this claim by illustrating how the meaning of a poem depends essentially on conceptual metaphors that pervade non-literary language and how poetic metaphors elaborate everyday metaphors creatively to achieve their “poeticality” (see, for instance, Deane 1995; Freeman 1995, 2002; Yu 2003). However, these studies have not answered the question of whether poems generally exploit the same range of conceptual metaphors to depict a particular target domain topic as the range that is commonly used to conceptualize it. The question is worth investigating not only because it can shed new light …
