Using personification in a setting description

Personification can be used to make your sentences more exciting by:

  • Describing objects as if they are people.
  • Describing objects as if they have feelings.
  •  

Example

'The rain stomped angrily on the fragile roof like an angry giant.'

‘The snow painted delicate white pictures on the ground as it fell gently from the sky.’

 

As part of a setting description, these examples of personification create a clear image of the setting and help to set the mood of the scene.
