PATHETIC FALLACY



QUESTION:What do you mean by Pathetic Fallacy?



ANSWER: Pathetic Fallacy is a term originated by Ruskin in 1865. It is attribution of human characteristics to inanimate objects. Such an attribution falls short of a full personification.
For example:    [1] the cruel, crawling foam.
                           [2] Mute nature mourns her worshipper.
                           [3] Angry cloud and cruel wind.
