Personification is the attribution of human nature or character to animals,inanimate objects, or abstract notions, especially as a rhetorical figure.
-(in my words...) Giving nonhuman things, human traits.
Example - talking animals.
An EXAMPLE OF PERSONIFICATION IN "The most dangerous game" By: Richard Connell:"He struggled up to the surface and tried to cry out, but the wash from the speeding yacht slapped him in the face." This is personification because the waves do not have the human ability to slap someone.
