Winter was dreary gray days with bitter cold.

No this is not

No this is not personification as your subject "winter" has not taken on any human characteristics.

If, for example, you changed the sentence to:

"Winter wears dreary, gray days with bitter cold."

This would be an example of personification because "winter" is wearing the days as a human would wear a coat.

Normally winter cannot run, drink, speak, die, or anything else humans can do, but when personified, it can.

not exactly. Personification

not exactly. Personification would be describing something, for example something like " the dirty old cow," or " the wise old man".

I just can't find the correct word!

The blood, sweat, tears, & love he 'poured' into the ring.

What can I use instead of 'poured'
Endowed
Infused
?

Dialogue

Let's say a human was talking to a tree about personification. Would that be an example of personification?

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 04/15/2016 - 05:34
Personification

No, that is not personification. Now if you were to say the tree swayed back and forth that would be personification because humans can sway. However, trees cannot so you are giving human traits to a plant.

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 05/23/2016 - 00:32
I would disagree in that the

I would disagree in that the word sway does not actually imply that what is swaying is doing so of its own volition, whereas to say the tree danced in the wind does imply that the tree is moving of its own volition.

is this an example of personification. Because i don't think meditation can literately give someone a tool to change who they are.

Is this personification?

Is this personification;

On my way to Slinger, Wisconsin
I see a white swan, up ahead, nestled in green grass along the road,
Watching each car drive by with a quick turn of it neck.

Closer, I see it is an empty plastic bag for a kitchen waste paper basket.

I will never forget that swan.

HALP MEH PLZ!!

No... it's an idiom

This is not personification because nothing here is being given a quality of a human. This is just an idiom.

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 05/23/2016 - 00:38
no... it's figurative

no... it's figurative language, but there is not a human trait given to an inanimate object

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 03/22/2016 - 19:01
Yes, this is personification.

Yes, this is personification. A person can't actually feel someone's eyes on the back of their neck.

is this personification?

But a bird that stalks

down his narrow cage

can seldom see through

his bars of rage

his wings are clipped and

his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.

Posted by Anonymous on Sat, 02/27/2016 - 02:33
Personification is not human

Personification is not human like. A bird can do all of those things so no it is not personification.

is this personification

“It was early morning and the sun was just peeking through the trees.”

Posted by Anonymous on Fri, 02/19/2016 - 23:37
Yes

The sun does not have eyes, so it cannot 'peek' and thus it has been given a human trait - meaning that this is personification.
