Personification in the Poem, “Snake”


Has Lawrence personified snake in his poem Snake?


Yes, as you know in personification the poets give human qualities or feelings to abstract ideas and inanimate objects. Likewise, Lawrence has personified soft yellow-brown colored snake throughout this poem such as sometimes snake drinks water from trough, licking lips like humans and turning its head and sometimes poet it as a king, who is the powerful and lord of life.
