Accentual-syllabic Prosody – It counts both number of syllables and accents in each line. We commonly find it in English poetry. Quantitative Prosody – It does not measure the number of syllables rather depends upon duration of syllables, which we can determine by amount of time used on pronunciation such as a free verse poem that consists of unmeasured lines. We find this type of prosody in Roman and classical Greek poetry while we find very rarely it in English poetry.

Sonnets by William Shakespeare From fairest creatures we desire increase, That thereby beauty’s rose might never die. But as the riper should by time decease, His tender heir might bear his memory: But thou, contracted to thine own bright eyes, Feed'st thy light’s flame with self-substantial fuel, Making a famine where abundance lies, Thyself thy foe, to thy sweet self too cruel. Thou that art now the world’s fresh ornament And only herald to the gaudy spring, Within thine own bud buriest thy content And, tender churl, mak'st waste in niggarding. Pity the world, or else this glutton be, To eat the world’s due, by the grave and thee.

The Home on the Hill by Edward Arlington Robinson They are all gone away, The house is shut and still, There is nothing more to say Through broken walls and gray, The wind blows bleak and shrill, They are all gone away Nor is there one today, To speak them good or ill There is nothing more to say Why is it then we stray Around the sunken sill?

Alligator Aids by Sun-Wukong Alligator Aids It comes in spades He didn’t bite through Too good to be true; Just broke the skin, But still spilled my end; He carried the sickness, And you are my witness, The mother fuckin alligator Just gave me AIDS.

    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.
