Hello. "Before the sea was, and the lands, and the sky that hangs over all, the face of nature showed alike in her whole round, which state men have called chaos: a rough unordered mass of things..." source: Ovid, Metamorphosis, Loeb edition cited at: W. McCarty, Examples of Personification: http://www.cch.kcl.ac.uk/legacy/staff/wlm/essays/what/examples.html ---------- search strategy: "before the sea" chaos metamorphoses I hope this helps.
