PERSONIFICATION


QUESTION:
What is Personification?
ANSWER:
The Personification is a figure of speech in which inanimate objects or abstracts ideas are endowed with human qualities or action.

For example:    [1] He is the favoured child of fortune.
                           [2] Let not Ambition mock their useful toil
                                Their homely joys, and destiny obscure.[Gray: Elegy]
