Personification gives human qualities to something (an object, an animal, a force of nature, an idea or emotion) that is not human. – In the opening line of Act 2, the Chorus observes, “Now old desire doth in his deathbed lie,” an announcement that Romeo’s former love for Rosaline has passed away like an old man.
