Tower Of Babel

Posted by Sathyaish Chakravarthy on November 25, 2004

I just read the story behind the Tower of Babel. I've read the phrase used as a metaphor often times. While the webpages and the Wikipedia tells me the myth behind the legend, what gives for it's metaphorical vernacular? I'd be happy to see some citations and a corresponding explanation for each. One or two will do.

Thanks!
