Simile:

...there was a long tumultuous shouting sound like the voice of a thousand waters--and the deep and dank tarn at my feet closed sullenly and silently over the fragments of the "House of Usher."

Metaphor:

The "House" is a metaphor. It symbolizes both the setting and the family itself.

Hyperbole:

"I can compare no earthly sensation."
