1 Identify the rhyme scheme and determine what type of sonnet this is using your sonnet notes. The expense of spirit in a waste of shame Is lust in action; and till action, lust Is perjured, murderous, bloody, full of blame, Savage, extreme, rude, cruel, not to trust, Enjoy'd no sooner but despised straight, Past reason hunted, and no sooner had Past reason hated, as a swallow'd bait On purpose laid to make the taker mad; Mad in pursuit and in possession so; Had, having, and in quest to have, extreme; A bliss in proof, and proved, a very woe; Before, a joy proposed; behind, a dream. All this the world well knows; yet none knows well To shun the heaven that leads men to this hell.

5 RHYTHMThe beatWhen reading a poem out loud, you may notice a sort of “sing-song” quality to it, just like in nursery rhymes. This is accomplished by the use of rhythm. Rhythm is broken into seven types.IambicAnapesticTrochaicDactylicMonosyllabicSpondaicAccentualLessCommonMostUsed
6 These identify patterns of stressed and unstressed syllables in a line of poetry. That means one syllable is pronounced stronger, and one syllable is softer.iambic:unstressedanapestic:stressedtrochaic:dactylic:
7 METERThe length of a line of poetry, based on what type of rhythm is used.The length of a line of poetry is measured in metrical units called “FEET”. Each foot consists of one unit of rhythm. So, if the line is iambic or trochaic, a foot of poetry has 2 syllables. If the line is anapestic or dactylic, a foot of poetry has 3 syllables.
8 (This is where it’s going to start sounding like geometry class!) Each set of syllables is one foot, and each line is measured by how many feet are in it. The length of the line of poetry is then labeled according to how many feet are in it.1: Monometer5: Pentameter2: Dimeter6: Hexameter3: Trimeter7: Heptameter4: Tetrameter8: Octameter*There are rarely more than 8 feet*
9 Count the syllables in each line to determine the meter. She Walks in BeautyI.She walks in beauty, like the nightOf cloudless climes and starry skies;And all that’s best of dark and brightMeet in her aspect and her eyes:Thus mellowed to that tender lightWhich Heaven to gaudy day denies.Reading this poem out loud makes the rhythm evident. Which syllables are more pronounced? Which are naturally softer?˘ ΄ ˘ ΄ ˘ ΄ ˘ ΄II.One shade the more, one ray the less,Had half impaired the nameless graceWhich waves in every raven tress,Or softly lightens o’er her face;Where thoughts serenely sweet express,How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.Count the syllables in each line to determine the meter.III.And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,The smiles that win, the tints that glow,But tell of days in goodness spent,A mind at peace with all below,A heart whose love is innocent!Examination of this poem reveals that it would be considered iambic tetrameter.
13 WHY did Shakespeare use iambic pentameter? To show emotion or importanceShakespeare was meant to be heard! It made it easier for the audience to follow the lines.It helped the actors to memorize their lines.It made sure that the actors emphasized the words Shakespeare wanted to emphasize.
