How does the meter in this line emphasize this use of alliteration?What kind of figure of speech is used in this line? Here is the line-- And the sheen of their spears was like stars on the sea Please help I do not understand this at all Please
Study these two sites and then tell us what you think.
And the SHEEN of their SPEARS was like STARS on the SEA.
How does the meter in this line emphasize this use of alliteration? Help please! The line is And the sheen of their spears was like stars on the sea. I do not even know what the meter is in this line. The last two websites help alittle but I still don't know this.
Look at what I posted above. The capitalized words are accented. In this meter, every third word is emphasized.
I should have said every third syllable is emphasized.
