Hello, I am looking for someone to write an essay on Poetry and Meter. It needs to be at least 1000 words.
Phillip Sydney’s poem speaks about the love shared between two people devoted to each other. It makes use of poetic meters that help the readers understand its contents, the most dominant of which is the iambic meter. Most of the lines using this specific meter have five feet so that it could be well considered as an iambic pentameter, starting off with an unstressed word and ending in a stressed word or syllable. Reading the poem in such a fashion, words are given the life and passion the author wanted to express, and the concept more easily understood.
To make the poem even livelier as it speaks about love, a very interesting subject matter, the author did not concentrate with just one meter but made variations with the use of other meters like trochee, pyrrhic and dactyl. Trochee helps the reader determine the important word that could express much of the author’s feelings like ‘love’ in the first line of the first paragraph, similar to the effects of the iambic meter, emphasizing on the word ‘true’. Using the two meters in a successive manner, the words ‘true love’ are greatly stressed, pointing the reader’s attention to it.
Pyrrhic on the other hand is used to vary the poem’s rhythm by giving it a calming effect despite the strong emotions in the poem. the first line of the first paragraph which uses this meter gives an aura of a quiet assurance of the love she has for her partner, knowing that she has the heart of her lover secured in her hands.
