Read the following line from Act IV, Scene 5 of Romeo and Juliet, when Capulet speaks of Juliet's death:
Death, that hath ta'en her hence to make me wail,
Ties up my tongue and will not let me speak.
What effect does Shakespeare's use of personification have?
a. It emphasizes the extent of Capulet's grief.***
b. It compares Capulet's grief with death.
c. It sets the scene's informal tone.
d. It explains Capulet's feelings about death.
