What is pathetic fallacy used for and what effect it could have?

1 Answer

Pathetic Phalacy is when nature is used to show emotion


Pathetic Phalacy is the attribution of human feelings and responses to inanimate things or animals.
Pathetic Phalacy is similar to the personification where you communicate a subject making it real.
Example of Pathetic Phalacy can be:
"The somber clouds darkened our mood"

This is Pathetic Phalacy because nature is involved to discribe someones feelings and emotions using the weather.
Pathetic Phalacy is used to make the reader feel the same emotions the character feels. Passing emotions from character to reader.

I hope this helps!
