I had to choose exaggeration and irony examples from The of the Lock I wanted someone to check to make sure I am right !

Are these quotes exaggeration?
" Then flashed the living lightning from her eyes."

"And swells her breast with conquests yet to come, the nymph exulting fills with shouts the sky; the walls, the woods, and long canals reply."

And is this an example of Irony?

"A third interprets motions, looks, and eyes; at every word a reputation dies."

  1. I haven't read that work, but the first quotation sounds more like personification to me.

    The second could work for exaggeration.

    The third sounds right.
