Homework Help: english llit

Posted by m on Sunday, November 6, 2011 at 10:17am.

I am still trying to figure out the meter in the poem On the Amtrak from Boston to New York City. Looking at the types of meter I narrowed it down to iambic pentameter and anapestic. I thought the meter was anapestic because of the 2 unaccented syllables followe by 1 accented syllables. I am not sure if this is right. I know the imagery and I know the symbolism to the poem and am not asking for help in that but meter is confusing to me even though I am researching it. I looked through google about the meter and still only get info on what I already have which is the types of meter. I am struggling to determine the type if someone could tell me if at least I am in the right direction
