Personification is a figure of speech in which a thing, an idea or an animal is given human qualities. The non-human objects are described 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. We can say that the sky has been personified in the sentence.
