rhetoric schmeteric

first of all, thanks go out to rogue classicism for the links and kind words.

second, the weekend's over and it's time to get back to figures and tropes. today's rhetorical figure is...

PROSOPOPEIA: personification. For example: 'The pine trees smiled wide and danced a jig to the tune of bob seger's "the fire down below".' i encourage you to submit your own prosopopeia in the comments section. the best one (as decided completely according the caprice of dennis and me, and possibly magister coke) will be awarded ITS OWN ENTRY, with A COOL TITLE.

personify away!
