Which of these phrases best decribes rhythm?
A.repeated sounds across lines of poetry
B. a poem's cadence, pace, or ongoing momentum
C.a collection of lines in a poem
D.the regular or irregular rhyme scheme in a poem
The book section we read today disn't define the word well, so know I'm unsure if its A or B. B makes more sense in general but the text says that rhythm "(of a poem) is a distinct beat produced by the pattern of accented and unaccented syllables" Could i get some help with this? Preferably from more than one person, to get a general consensus. Thanks
I would say B
B is very correct.
listen to the beat here:
There go, my hearts content.
Do you hear the beat, the cadence of the syllables?
The answers was B. Thanks for the help everyone :)
