Transcript of HYPERBOLE

hupér, "above"
+ bállō, "I throw"
Hyperbole, derived from a Greek word meaning “over-casting” is a figure of speech, which involves an exaggeration of ideas for the sake of emphasis.
William Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”, Act II, Scene II
“Neptune’s ocean wash this blood
Clean from my hand? No. This my hand will rather
The multitudinous seas incarnadine,
Making the green one red.”

"crying oceans"
