Sonnets

How would you spell out your heartbeat?


Meter

Meter

  • Meter: the basic rhythmic structure of a verse or lines in verse

  • Iambic pentameter: consists of five iambs – five sets of unstressed syllables followed by stressed syllables

  • Couplet: two lines of verse, usually in the same meter and joined by rhyme, that form a unit


R hyme

Rhyme

  • Rhyme scheme: the ordered pattern of rhymes at the ends of the lines of a poem or verse

  • Exact rhyme: a rhyme in which the later part of the word or phrase is identical sounding to that of another

    • Ex: cat; hat

  • Slant rhyme:  words that come near rhyming, but do not really rhyme

    • Ex: orange; door hinge

  • End rhyme: rhymes that come at the end of a line of poetry

  • Internal rhyme: rhymes that come in the middle of a line of poetry


Structure

Structure

  • Stanza: a group of lines forming the basic recurring metrical unit in a poem

  • Blank verse: a verse of iambic pentameter that does not rhyme

  • Free verse: poetry that does not rhyme or have a regular meter

  • Quatrain: a group of four lines
