No it's not a metaphor it's an antithesis.

"If love be rough with you, be rough with love"

Love is supposed to be known as a deeply kind and caring feeling. The quote above can be considered as a few different literary devices.
Love is a feeling; and in the quote, love is showing an action: being rough. That is an example of personification.
There is also an example of an oxymoron: love being rough. If you refer back to my definition of love, or use common sense to know what love is; then, you can see that the definition of love contradicts with the definition of the act of being rough.
Lastly, the quote is a metaphor. love could possibly be a symbol of a person, that persons qualities being compared to the qualities of love; however, that person is showing roughness.
This quote is very simple to decipher if you look at it close enough with welcoming eyes.

hmmm.

definetly personification to begin with because love cannot be rough. it isnt a metaphor because the author is not saying its like anything, but rather simply giving good advice.

NO

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 02/22/2013 - 04:14
pretty sure its

pretty sure its personification because "love" is being rough, a human nature

I believe it's personification

For example "The teapot danced and whistled with glee." that show personification because it gives human characteristics to the teapot. A metaphor would be like "Fred's a pig at the table." because it is an comparison between two unrelated things and doesn't use like or as. Love can't be rough but it's a human characteristic so it truly is personification.

not really

the teapot danced and whistled with glee" is definitely a metaphor as it gives a non-human thing human characteristics. However you cannot swap it around, you can't give a human the qualities of a pig and call it personification
