Personification is a figure of speech that attributes inanimate objects or animals with human actions. In simpler words, it is giving actions to non-living things that are usually done or acted by humans. An example of personification is “The trees are dancing whenever a strong wind kisses them.” the trees cannot literally dance and the wind cannot do not kiss.
But with the use of those two verbs that humans can intentionally do, it makes the reader understand better that the wind is blowing hard that it makes the trees sway. Personification is often used in poems and plays as it can describe an event more effectively and to put more drama into it.
