The poets of rhythm into space and time


Repetition is the repeated use of words or phrases. Poets use repetition to emphasize an idea or a feeling in their poetry. Sometimes repetition is in the form of a refrain, a repeated line or lines that recurs throughout the poem. In "The Raven," by Edgar Allan Poe, the words "nothing more" and "nevermore" are repeated at the end of stanzas. This is the consistent answer that the raven gives to the speaker when asked if he will get over the loss of his love, Lenore. Poe uses repetition to show how bleak the situation really is. This is similar to the idea of a refrain in a song. You can find a word or phrase that is integral to your poem's meaning and repeat it intermittently throughout. You can then practice moving the word or phrase to different spots in the poem to see where the repetition best fits.

These examples illustrate what a famous rhythm poem looks like and its form, scheme, or style (where appropriate). The poems may also contain the word 'rhythm'.
