What is a rhetorical hyperbole?

Answer

Rhetorical hyperbole is the art of using an exaggeration as a rhetorical device. These are types of exaggerations that are meant to create an effect. They are commonly found in poetry and casual speech. An example of a rhetorical hyperbole would be: The suitcase weighed a ton. This makes the point that the suitcase was quite heavy, even though it did not weigh as much as a ton. It is a simple figure of speech.
