Please remove 'personification' as a synonym for anthropomorphism. Personification relates to a poetical use of human qualities describing inanimate objects while anthropomorphism is the attribution of human qualities towards inanimate objects or animals.
Not done While your point is (IMHO) a good one, "personification" currently redirects here. Therefore, your proposed change isn't as simple as it sounds; it would require some discussion first. There would be nothing wrong with you starting a formal proposal. Joefromrandb (talk) 17:46, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
Unlike personification, for anthropomorphism, the human attributes given to the nonhuman character is a premise of the character and happens through the entire work. Maybe something about that can be added to this article till something different is done, such as a new article for personification? The article looked like it was protected a couple of years ago... 126.96.36.199 (talk) 02:58, 15 June 2014 (UTC)
I was wondering whether Terry Pratchett's Discworld could be listed among the Modern Literature references. It has a pantheon of deities and anthropomorphic personifications (notably Death, Fate, Luck, Time, War, Famine and Plague - potentially familiar roles regardless of knowledge of the fandom - as well as characters equivilant to figures such as Father Christmas, Jack Frost and the Easter Bunny; and they have their own, original personifications). It also has it's own mythopoeia surrounding the existence, role and creation of anthropomorphic personifications. I would have tried to add a reference to it myself were it not for the page being protected.
I also quite agree with Tamfang above - a list of notable anthropomorphic personifications would be very interesting and useful. Perhaps a separate page or category would help? --Gallifreyan Witch (talk) 23:27, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
I feel that the Khajiit and Argonians of the Elder Scrolls series should be mentioned under the Video Games subheader. They are beloved races and deserve a mention — Preceding unsigned comment added by CaptainDumac (talk • contribs) 15:38, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
