Personification in Ese IFA


Personification is an important stylistic feature of Yoruba oral literature in general and of Ese ifa in particular. 

In Ese ifa, stories are told about animals, birds, insects, trees and other aspects of nature as if such stories are being told about human beings.

 The result is that human characteristics are ascribed to animals and ordinary objects of nature. 

Personification can also involve part of the human body like Owo (Hand) and ese (Foot). 

Personification therefore enables the priest of lfa to  tell stories about anything in the characteristic lfa form without having to change his language and his emotions whenever he moves from the human to the non-human zone.
