Homework Help: English Lit-Please offer opinion

Posted by Jamie on Friday, January 13, 2012 at 2:26pm.

I asked this question yesterday but I thought of another possibility-I had to tell what figure of speeech
And here we are as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight
Where ignorant armies clash by night
By Matthew Arnold in Dover Beach
Choices were simile, metaphor, personification, analogy, litotes, none
Ms. Sue agreed with me is was a simile not a personification but then I'm wondering if this could be an analogy comparing two things that otherwise would be totally unrelated-darling plain to the world?? Is that a possibility?
