In the Sonnet 55, Time is described as 'Sluttish'. Which poetic device is used by the poet in doing so? .

hi,
THE POETIC DEVICE THAT HAS BEEN USED IS PERSONIFICATION. TIME HAS BEEN PERSONIFIED AS BEING SLUTTISH. AS TIME DOESNT CARE FOR ANYONE . IT DESTROYS MONUMENTS AND STATUES. IT DISCOLOURS THEM AND RUINS THEM.

METAPHOR IS USED JUST TO COMPARE TWO THINGS. BUT IN THIS CASE TIME IS NOT BEING COMPARED RATHER ITS PERSONIFIES ( GIVEN HUMAN LIKE QUALITIES) . THEREFORE PERSONIFICATION
