"the moon hid her face..."   (Chapter III.)

Wilde provides a little more seriousness and legitimacy to Sir Simon's ghostly actions in this passage by writing in some wonderful imagery to add to the tension of the scene. This is an example of personification, and it paints a vivid image for the readers of how even the moon is going to hide from the ghost's terrifying actions.
