LiteraryDevices.Net wrote:Personification is a figure of speech in which a thing – an idea or an animal – is given human attributes. The non-human objects are portrayed in such a way that we feel they have the ability to act like human beings. For example, when we say, “The sky weeps,” we are giving the sky the ability to cry, which is a human quality. Thus, we can say that the sky has been personified in the given sentence.

Figura de Linguagem wrote:Personificação é o mesmo que Prosopopeia. Representam figuras de linguagem capazes de atribuir a seres irracionais ou a objetos inanimados, ações, qualidades e sentimentos que são próprios dos seres humanos.
