pathetic fallacy


pathetic fallacy

“. . . the tendency to credit nature with human emotions. In a larger sense the pathetic fallacy is  any false emotionalism resulting in a too impassioned description of nature. It is the carrying over to inanimate objects of the moods and passions of a human being” (Source: Harmon & Holman, 379).
