    2. Read the following quote from Betty Bonham Lies’s retelling of the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. When Orpheus made music, all the world stopped to listen. Wild beasts drew near him, so entranced they put aside their fierceness. Trees gathered around to hear his beautiful notes. Rivers stopped flowing along the banks so that they could hear Orpheus, whose music was more harmonious than theirs. The very rocks softened when he touched his lyre. What does the use of hyperbole accomplish? (1 point) It foreshadow future events in the plot so that readers are able to understand how Orpheus will use his music to succeed. It exaggerates Orpheus’ beautiful music so that readers understand how powerful an effect Orpheus's music has. It explains Orpheus’s musical skills so that readers know that Orpheus is able to tame animals with his music. It provides comparisons between Orpheus’s music and things in nature so that readers understand the link between music and nature.
