Report as

The poet Homer often made use of hyperbole in his epic poems. Two examples include the lines suggesting that the god Mars cried out "as loudly as nine or ten thousand men" and that the weather was so foul that "two winds rose with a cry that rent the air and swept the clouds before them."



Hyperbole poetry is poetry that includes the use of over-exaggeration for the purpose of creating emphasis or being humorous, but it is not intended to be taken literally. Hyperbole is a common feature of poetry throughout the ages.


Hope this helps!!
