  • 'A Fit Of Ryme Against Rhyme'

    255 Words  | 2 Pages

    The overall meaning of “A Fit of Rhyme Against Rhyme” is that poets, should rather than ignore rhyme, accept it as something that has importance and tolerate its presence.

  • Augusta Webster's Use Of Rhyme Scheme

    360 Words  | 2 Pages

    This passage is quite the declaration and I concur with you MH in that the construction of these lines as A B C D E F G H I J K lacks a formal rhyme scheme.

I attempted to convey the sense of wonder and nature I felt while on the trip, and I think this
