Personification in A Jury of Her Peers

Personification Examples in A Jury of Her Peers:

A Jury of Her Peers 1

""it seems kind of sneaking: locking her up in town and coming out here to get her own house to turn against her!"..."   (A Jury of Her Peers)

Mrs. Hale personifies the house in this statement in order to show a relationship between Minnie and her home. In Mrs. Hale’s opinion, the house should be “loyal” to its mistress rather than used as evidence against her. This personification creates a solid bond between Minnie and her house, one that is absent in descriptions of Minnie and her husband.
