Personification ?

"She (a doll) was two inches tall, with yellow hair pulled up in a high ponytail and her hands on her hips..."
Could hair pulled up be personification
And her hands on her hips?

Personification

No. It describes the style of hair the doll has. Although the doll is inanimate, her hands are really on her hips. the author is trying to describe how the doll looks like. Don't confuse that with personification which uses non human-like items and gives it human qualities. For example "Everything was screaming: the sea, the wind, my heart."

JK Rowling Personification or Metaphor?

I'm curious, would "talent and intelligence never yet inoculated the caprice of the Fates..." from JK Rowling's speech be considered personification since talent and intelligence are not inanimate objects. Would this instead be a metaphor?

Could personification be describing wind as an animal rather than as a human?

That would e then known as a metaphor not personification. Personification only occur's when an object is described as if it were human as personification contains the word person in the device. :)

yeah

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 04/12/2017 - 08:37
yes

you can say "his eyes felt hungry" or, "his hungry eyes"

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 04/05/2017 - 02:00
figure missed

"his eyes felt hungry" is not only personification, it is more specifically the figure of synesthesia, which is the action of one sense (eyes for seeing) imitating another sense (feeling hunger). Eyes do not feel, except when you speak in the figure of speech called synesthesia.

Cows call to each other

Is "cows call to each other as they slowly plod along" personification? I feel the "call" part is what humans do, however, animals do that too so I'm not sure it is personification.

Posted by Anonymous on Sun, 02/12/2017 - 03:44
anthropomorphism

cows are given human characteristic of speaking or calling

Winter was dreary gray days with bitter cold.

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 10/11/2016 - 23:27
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.
