Homework Help: English: Consonance and Assonance

Posted by * on Monday, February 4, 2008 at 10:32pm.

The garden where Marvell scorned love’s solicitude –
that dream – and played instead an arcane solitaire,
shuffling his thoughts like shadowy chance
across the shrubs of ecstasy,
and cast the myths away to flowering hours
as yes, his mind, that sea, caught at the green
thoughts shadowing a green infinity.

Would consonance in this stanza be words such as shadowy, shuffling, shrubs, shadowing
and
assonance be solicitude, solitaire, cast, ecstacy, sea, ?
