Hi,

I just have a question about a confusing question to me in a poem that I have to answer... The poem is Annabel Lee.

Here's the question they are asking:

What was the effect of the repeated rhymes?

I can't find an answer to the question?

    Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Repetition can be used to emphasize something, like a "refrain" or to give rhythm and shape to a poem.

  • Literature -

    In long poems, such as epics especially, the rhythm, rhyme, and repetition help the bard (sometimes known as a "singer") remember all the words. Remember that poetry is usually meant to be read or spoken or sung aloud -- not simply to be read silently.
