Without exception, the use of metaphors is a common issue in various disciplines including literature, linguistics, social studies, political science, and translation studies. Metaphors have attracted so much interest, thanks to the effective role they can play in communicating messages. This study situates itself in the fields of both translation of metaphors and political arena. It tackles the use of metaphors in political feature articles translated from English into Arabic, an area that has markedly been under-researched to the best of my knowledge. Therefore, the notable presence of the purposeful use of metaphors in feature articles as well as the ways in which metaphors are tackled when such texts are translated from English into Arabic have motivated this research in its attempt to fill a gap in this field by investigating the use of metaphors in political feature articles translated from English into Arabic.
