Use of Personification and Imagery in Poetry

A reading of Theodore Roethke’s dark "Root Cellar" and Sylvia Plath’s more abstract "Mirror" launches a discussion of imagery and personification in poetry.  After finding examples of personification in the poems, class members craft sentences using personification. Links to the poems are included.
