Is this figurative language?


So is this line from a poem I have to decipher figurative language? and If so, what kind?
“The man in the mirror, who could it be? He is not the man who once looked back at me.”
the man is still the same literal man, just not in personality, so then what would that be called?
any answers would be great, thanks!
