John Milton One thing you will notice right away is that there is no rhyme. Milton himself explains why: The Measure is English Heroic Verse without rhyme, as that of Homer in Greek, and Virgil in Latin; rhyme being no necessary Adjunct or true Ornament of Poem or good Verse, in longer Works especially, but the Invention of a barbarous Age, to set off wretched matter and lame meter; grac’t indeed since by the use of some famous modern Poets, carried away by Custom, but much to thir own vexation, hindrance, and constraint to express many things otherwise, and for the most part worse then else they would have exprest them.

Shakespeare’s noble characters usually speak in iambic pentameter. ” Shakespeare’s commoners speak in prose, but other characters often have characteristic meters in which they speak. For example, in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Puck speaks in trochaic tetrameter. Remember that trochee is STRONG weak, and tetrameter means four feet per line. So trochaic tetrameter is STRONG weak / STRONG weak / STRONG weak / STRONG weak. If we shadows have offended, think but this; and all is mended that you have but slumbered here while these visions did appear and this weak and idle theme no more yielding but a dream.

This is an example of catalexis. The line is trochaic, but Blake does not want to end on a weak stress, because that would weaken the whole driving force of the line: Tyger! Tyger! Burning brighter? This poem is a great example of Romanticism: something from nature (the tiger) is linked with important and emotional ideas. But Blake was not limited to nature; the world of mankind, the urban landscape, was also an important subject of his poetry. London I wander through each chartered street, Near where the chartered Thames does flow, And mark in every face I meet, Marks of weakness, marks of woe.
