Personification is when a nonliving thing is given human or living traits.
An example from Romeo and Juliet is in Act 3, Scene 5, Line 9-10
It says, "Night's candles are burnt out, and jocund day/Stands tiptoe on the misty mountaintops." Since it can't stand on tiptoe and is a lifelike characteristiic this is personification.
Hope this helps!
