"Those RULES of old discover'd not devis'd
Are nature still, but Nature Mehtodiz'd
Nature, Like Liberty is but restrain'd
By the same Laws which first herself ordain'd
What is this an example of
I'm thinking it is either analogy or personification in comparing nature and liberty to a woman as "her" This was written by Pope in "An Essay on Criticism"

or could it be a simile when it states Nature like Liberty is but restrin'd

simile - use of "like" or "as" to make the comparison
metaphor - no use of "like" or "as" to make the comparison
Look up all terms here and let us know what you decide:
