Metaphor

It is a hyperbole, for sure.

(Starship) Heart of Gold

I'm sure you don't necessarily need any more opinions, but personally I would definitely consider it to be a metaphor, and most certainly not an example of hyperbole: the narrator describes this character's (presumably) heart as being pure gold. Were xe to refer to the character as someone who is always right, or does the right thing every time, than it would be hyperbole; were xe to say they were worth all the gold in the world, it would be hyperbole; however, in this instance only a metaphor is used.

Not a Hyperbole

I agree with you. I know for sure that it isn't a hyperbole. "A heart full of gold" isn't exaggerating anything, no one's heart has any gold in it, much less filled with it, therefore, a "Heart full of gold" is not a hyperbole. (sorry, I know that you probably don't need any more comments but here I am... hope that this helped)

Daydreaming

I can't find a good hyperbole to go into an daydreaming poem. Could someone help me?

daydreaming hyperbole

i had my head in the clouds

my head was so high in the clouds that i couldn't see the ground

the daydream unfolded like a film and all sense of reality slipped away....

I wonder

when we use "too" in a sentence (this is too perfect) would it also be considered a hyperbole?

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 06/13/2014 - 05:04
No

No probably not you need more detail and exaggerate more maybe " This is so perfect even a perfectionist cant compare... " something like that

can anyone see if there is a hyderbole in this poem?

there are so many islands!
As many islands as the stars at night on that branched tree from which meteors are shaken
like falling fruit around the schooner flight
But things must fall, and it always was
on one hand is Venus and the other mars;
fall, and are one just as this earth is one
island in archipelagoes of stars.
My first friend was the sea. Now is the last.
I stop talking now . I work, I study the stars
sometimes is just me, and the soft-scissor foam
as the deck turn white and the light over me
is a road in white moonlight taking me home
S
Shabine sang to you from the depths of the sea.

PLEASE HELP ME!!

Poem's Hyperbole

I believe the hyperbole within the poem would be: "...tree from which meteors are shaken like falling fruit around the schooner flight..."

nope! Like this: its an exaggeration, i.e. "My pillow is made of stones" "I ran hundred's of miles today!" Neither of which is true, but to get the point across you fib a bit.
