Hyperbole

Hyperbole 

Writers use hyperbole to add humor to a text. 

Hyperbole


In paragraph 2, the author says, “I wanted to punch bullies in the stomach so hard that my fist came out their backs.” 

This is an example of hyperbole because it is a wild exaggeration. 

Hyperbole is different from ordinary exaggeration. It is an exaggeration that couldn’t actually happen. The use of hyperbole adds humor to a difficult subject. It also helps show the author’s voice and personality. Without the use of hyperbole, writing about this topic would have a much different tone.
