    Question need help with literary figures of speech

    He has some homework on various figures of speech and what type they are. It is over my head & I was good in English. Anyway, what exactly would "The island dreams under the dawn." fall under?

    He?

    You might like to check through this: Figure of Speech - Glossary Definition - UsingEnglish.com

    The example you have given will fall into personification as "the island dreams" is allocating human action to an inanimate object.
