Reading Sonnets: 12/10/2010 16:12:00 Literary tradition: 14 lines, usually in iambic pentameter. Mid C16th emergence in the Renaissance period. Adaptation of European literary forms – Petrarch. Variation of the English language, stressed syllables in a structured and patterned way. Metre emerges when you group certain syllables together. Trochee & iamb: most common metric form. Dactyl & anapaest: least common metric form, but give the metre pace. Blank verse = unrhyming iambic pentameter, ie, Shakespeare & Milton. Pentameter = 5 Tetrameter = 4 Trimeter = 3 End stopped = pause at the end of a line, grammatical stop. Enjambment = run on line. Caesura = natural pause within a line, usually to do with grammar. Components of a metaphor: Tenor = thing that is really being spoken about. Vehicle = the expressive similarity. Why should there be expressive similarities about totally different things?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
