Can you suggest a short story rich in figurative language?

I would like to recommend one of my favorite short stories, "The Most Dangerous Game" by Richard Connell.  I always use this story with seniors to review all the elements of fiction (plot, character, setting, conflict, theme) as well as figurative language (as those you mentioned) and general literary elements (foreshadowing, irony).  You may have read it in 9th grade, which is rather common, but I'd suggest to you that it's worth reading again.  You'll not only enjoy it, but I'm confident you'd find all the elements you're looking for in your question.
