Figurative language is very descriptive language. It can have multiple meanings (symbolism), or it can be richly descriptive (imagery). It can also provide hints about things to come in the work (foreshadowing) as well as use well known cultural people, beliefs, etc... as a reference (allusion). An example would be, her smile was a beacon of hope.
