How many syllables are there in each line? Reread the poem in silence; and then read. Don`t stop for lines, but only for punctuation. Mark the syllable as accented or without accent. Now divide each line into feet. Did you mark (or scan) the first two lines like that? The poem begins in the amphitheatre trimeter, which gives syncope and a majestic feeling. This is an appropriate opening to discuss a “big” image. (A Kermess was a medieval fair.) The second line receives the amphibious counter and strengthens the established rhythm, but the Step at the end of the line creates a tension between the syntactic unit (which ends with the comma on line 3) and the end of line two. Line two ends before the handset expects it to end, creating a waiting atmosphere in the handset; Tension and unfinished feeling mimic the effect of watching dancers walk around in a country dance – a dizzying scpectacle. The Crossing of Line Three continues this balance. As the poem represents an itchy, slightly drunken joy, it is appropriate for the poet to give the reader the feeling of reading. (One could also speak of the onomatopoean words “squeal,” “blare” and “tweedle” and the echoes of those words in “bugle” and “fiddles.” In addition, the sounds [music?] are appropriately reproduced in the verse by this diction.) Another device that refers to rhythm is rhyme.

Rhyme magnetizes the mouth because the mouth takes the same shape it had. The internal rhyme occurs in a line of poetry, as now in this sweet fruit season Our reason remains in the groups in wasteland. where “season” and reason are internal female rhymes; “mellow” and “fallow” and “fruit” and “groups” are close rhymes. The female rhyme is a bi-silicic rhyme. The male rhyme is a monosyllabic rhyme, such as “turn” and “burn.” Male Endreim is often marked to show a pattern. If z.B. the first line rhymes with the second line and the third with the fourth, the verse is called “aabb.” When the first and third, the second and fourth, and the fifth and seventh and sixth and eighth lines rhyme, a rhyme pattern is called “ababcdcd.” Triple, like “numinous” and “luminous,” is the rhyme of three syllables and often has a humorous effect. Poetry also uses assonance and consonant, the two categories of alliteration. Assonance is a repetition of vocal sounds; Sound, consonic sounds. Assonance: oared boats from the lonely ocean (long o son); Sound: the boldly cut path is turned (t-son). Which musical devices you explore in your essay, be sure to explain how well and why these devices work with the message the author presents and/or the images the author shows. Although you are fluent in English, it may still take a few exercises to raise awareness of the many breathtaking lyrical currents in poetry.

Perseverance, because then the brilliant but subtle poetic language gently becomes electrification of your sensations. Each of these lines has an accentless pattern to their syllables. Look at the previous section to see how this bi-2xdobe pattern is called. Divide each line into feet; You should have four feet of this model. If the poem has four feet of iambibe, it is written in iambic tetrameter.
