Please read the following sentence:
A lot of students hate to buy a required text that the professor has written only to have his lectures repeat it.
I know we can say ' to have somebody do something'. In this sentence it is to have something do something. My question is: Is this personification?
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.
I wouldn't say so. I also wouldn't classify this as exactly the same as the standard causative. It's more like 'only to find that his lectures repeat it'
Thank you very much for your explanation.
