    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.
