# What is the opposite of personification?

Jul 25, 2016

(Perhaps) $\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{incarnation}}$ or $\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{substantiation}}$

#### Explanation:

I assume that you are looking for a term to express the concept of assigning a person to an inanimate form.

Example:

The Black Plague was the Genghis Khan of Western Europe, leaving only desolation in its path.
(Warning; this statement is probably not accurate; its only role is to demonstrate "incarnation").
