There are many examples of figurative language. You can find personification in "and this wind-scourged winter night Ulrich had banded together his foresters to watch the dark forest." You can find metaphors in "Relief at being alive and exasperation at his captive plight brought a strange medley of pious thank-offerings and sharp curses to Ulrich's lips." (It isn't really a medley, right?) You can find non-literal language: "Good," snarled Georg, "good." (He doesn't really snarl.) You can find hyperbole: "How the whole region would stare and gabble if we rode into the market-square together."
