troglobite:

trends in writing that existed in the mid 1700s and have come back into style

– randomly capitalizing words without regard to Importance
– saying ‘tho’ instead of ‘though’ 
– excessive metaphors, analogies, and personification for/of/whatever inanimate objects and incorporeal concepts 

I disagree with two of these.

First, the Capitalization is based on importance. It is there to imply emphasis or to endow a noun with Proper Noun status.

Second, literature never dropped metaphors or personification. Not even a little. And in no way are they as excessive as they have been in the past.
