Alexander Pope's "An Essay on Criticism.
Would this be considered a analogy or personification?
Those RULES of old discover'd, not devis'd,
Are Nature still, but Nature Methodiz'd;
Nature, like Liberty, is but restrain'd
By the same Laws which first herself ordain'd.
* i thought it would be personification because he is comparing nature to liberty

He's giving both liberty and nature human characteristics -- so, yes, personification.
"which first herself ordain'd"

So he is comparing both to a women?

He's comparing them to each other and giving both a woman's characteristics.
woman = one
women = two or more
