Homework Help: English 2

Posted by Melly on Wednesday, July 30, 2014 at 4:36pm.

Respond to the following question about the poem "The Alarm Clock" by Mari Evans

We generally think that poetry uses more pattern in language than does prose. Pattern is achieved by the organized use of repetitions. It may be repeated beats (rhythm); repeated word sounds (rhyme); or repeated phrases. Contemporary poetry tends to discard the older kinds of repetition, but it still uses a pattern that holds it together and makes it different from prose. Its repetitions are more like the irregular pounding of waves on the shore than the steady beat of a machine. What repeated elements do you detect in "The Alarm Clock"?
