Would you tell me whether I am right about my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?
His mind …saw everything a little larger than life-size. (W. S. Maugham, “Of Human Bondage”)
It had been for Andrew and axioms that Pat was a little larger than life and far too dignified and authoritative… (I. Murdoch, “The Red and the Green”)
larger than life = exaggerated
Thanks for your efforts.
Indeed! But it is also used to indicate an impression rather than exaggeration.
