There are, however, such a large number of metaphorical expressions and lexicalized, so-called 'frozen metaphors' in both German and English that the importance of metaphors exceeds by far their poetic usage. For Grice, metaphors result from the flouting of the first maxim Quality - that of not saying what one believes to be false. Metaphorical expressions hence provoke a search for the intended speaker meaning because of the obvious discrepancy between the proposition expressed by the utterance and the 'falseness' of its content.
This 'falseness', however, is not always clear to see. Take, for example, the metaphor 'no man is an island'.
It is obviously metaphorical in both content and meaning and one could deduce a whole range of weak implicatures from it but it is in no way 'literally false'. Considering that Grice labelled tropes and figures of speech such as tautology, irony and metaphor as cases of 'maxim exploitation' , it seems reasonable to analyse a text which allows for a maximum of maxim exploitation and whose author is responsible for a large number of frozen metaphors in English: What makes Shakespeare to name just one example extraordinary is the way he exploited this ordinary aspect of communication so that a single line or phrase triggers the discovery of a whole array of implicatures.
