In Andrew Marvell’s poem ‘The Fair Singer’ he writes that love did compose:
To make a final conquest of all me,
Love did compose so sweet an enemy,
In whom both beauties to my death agree,
Joining themselves in fatal harmony;
That while she with her eyes my heart does bind,
She with her voice might captivate my mind.
I am unsure what the term is for giving human traits to an abstract thing such as love, fear, and such. Is it personification or something else?
