Pathetic Fallacy is a more specific type of personification.


Pathetic Fallacy consists of giving animals and inanimate objects human feelings.

for example,

"The angry sea"

"the clouds are crying"

"The sad cold night"

while personification is just giving any type of human qualities to animals or inanimate objects.
