Literary Lingo

It’s time for some Literary Lingo.

Today’s word is: Personification

A form of metaphor in which human characteristics are attributed to nonhuman things. Personification offers the writer a way to give the world life and motion by assigning familiar human behaviors and emotions to animals, inanimate objects, and abstract ideas. For example, in Keats’s “Ode on a Grecian Urn,” the speaker refers to the urn as an “unravished bride of quietness.”
