Cliche Examples

A cliche is an expression, idea, or element of an artistic work which has become overused to the point of losing its original meaning, or effect, and even, to the point of being trite or irritating, especially when at some earlier time it was considered meaningful or novel. The term is frequently used in modern culture for an action or idea that is expected or predictable, based on a prior event.

A cliche can be used in reference to people, time, emotions, or to infer a hiding meaning. However a successful cliche often relies upon analogy or exaggeration for effect, often drawn from everyday experience. Used sparingly, they may succeed, however, the use of a cliche in writing, speech, or argument is generally considered a mark of inexperience or a lack of originality. Displeased by the use of cliches in literature, French poet Gerard de Nerval said, "The first man who compared woman to a rose was a poet, the second, an imbecile." Other widely used, yet frowned-upon literary cliches are phrases such as; "Avoid it like the plague," "The pot calling the kettle black," and "Think outside the box."
