Rule on Applying Personification

Revise those sentences where you apply personification.

Here’s a general rule. Don’t do anything within your analysis that the literary text doesn’t do. For example, if the author uses personification as part of his right in terms of poetic license, then you also have permission to do the same within your analysis. In this instance, your analysis parallels the structure and context of the author’s work. However, if the author calls one character one thing, and you call the same character something else, then your analysis is not a full and complete reflection of the author’s work.

This rule falls under the comment “Wordy Phrasing.” To read the full post, click here.
