What does the term "metaphor" mean in English Literature?

A metaphor is when you say something is like another thing, for instance "Mr Micawber suggested that the shopkeeper was like a mangy dog who should have been drowned at birth." It means the same in English literature as it does in any other domain so your question is a bit weird.
