The phrase pathetic fallacy is a literary term for the attributing of human emotion and conduct to all aspects within nature. It is a kind of personification that is found in poetic writing when, for example, clouds seem sullen, when leaves dance, or when rocks seem indifferent.

Bathetic (the noun is bathos) comes from the Greek word for "depth” but not as in the ocean floor but as in “anticlimax, a descent from the sublime to the ridiculous.” Being bathetic is usually not done on purpose. A bathetic scene in a movie might have a character fall to her knees and scream, “Nooooooo!” because her son left his socks on the floor again. Don't confuse bathetic with pathetic, which means "pitiful."
