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

  • English -

    He's giving both liberty and nature human characteristics -- so, yes, personification.

    "which first herself ordain'd"

  • English** -

    So he is comparing both to a women?

  • English** -

    He's comparing them to each other and giving both a woman's characteristics.

    Please note:

    woman = one

    women = two or more

  • English** -

    Oh i see.. and thanks i was just typing too fast there haha
