PURPOSE OF PERSONIFICATION

Personification is a literary device used to create an image in the mind of the reader. If images can be created in the mind of the reader, the reader will engage with the text and re-create the text so that they can relate to it.

It gives an inanimate object or anything not human human abilities or characteristics. For example, if "the Sun beat on the desert dwellers," can the sun really beat someone? No, but it is written like so.
