identify and explain the figure of speech used in the line the river glideth at his own will

Dear Student

The figure of speech used here is Personification. This is because the will or choice made, just like a human being does, has been linked to the river.

Personification – 'The sun' has been personified using the male pronoun 'his'. The river glideth at his own sweet will: Personification – The river has been given the animate quality of having its own 'will'.
Hope This Helps You :)
