What type of literary device is this

If you remove the "as if", then yes. Otherwise it's a simile.

I need help

"The sky drops silver threads of sleet"
Is this a hyperbole??

Posted by Anonymous on Sun, 08/27/2017 - 00:48
No

It is actually imagery.
An example of a hyperbole is, "I'm so hungry I could eat a horse."
Imagery is describing something in depth.
I know this is late, but let us hope this was not a graded project or quiz because if so, you are not going to do well.

"EVEN A STONE CAN SHIVER AND BLEED"

Hi. We are really confused whether this quote from the Odyssey is a Hyperbole or Personification. "Even a stone can shiver and bleed. " Please explain. It will be a big help for us because we have an intensive review.

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 08/18/2017 - 06:39

Is it not a personification?

The stone is said to 'shiver and bleed' like a human, and said stone has been given traits and characteristics of a human as a result

help me

is 'the ground is trembled' a hyperbole

Posted by Anonymous on Sat, 07/08/2017 - 08:54
this

If the ground is trembling, then it is simply a statement of fact and serves to modify the noun that is ground. However if trembled is used as to express emotion such as fear, which I think is what you are asking, it is personification. This is a literary device that gives human characteristics to non-human things.
