  • The Shakespearean sonnet rhyme scheme is: abab, cdcd, efef, gg
  • HOLD UP! What’s RHYME SCHEME? Let’s figure it out…
  • The type of meter used in Shakespearean sonnets is:
  • iambic pentameter.
  • The meter of a poem is:
  • its rhythm of accented or unaccented syllables organized into patterns called feet.
  • An iamb is:
  • a foot consisting of two syllables, one unaccented (unstressed) and one accented (stressed). An unaccented syllable is identified with a: U

  • An iambic foot is an unstressed syllable followed by a stressed syllable. The rhythm can be written as:
  • da DUM
  • A standard line of iambic pentameter is five iambic feet in a row:
  • da DUM da DUM da DUM da DUM da DUM

notes
  • Pentameter means:
  • five feet (pent is Greek root for five). So, each line in a sonnet contains five iambs.
  • 10 syllables per line in a Shakespearean sonnet
  • *Why iambic pentameter:
  • -  Because it reflects the natural rhythm of the human heartbeat
  • -  Because it is the rhythm most common to our natural way of speaking.
