1 Creative Writing Poetry

2 Poetry Blank Verse-is a literary device defined as un-rhyming verse written in iambic pentameter. In poetry and prose, it has a consistent meter with 10 syllables in each line (pentameter); where, unstressed syllables are followed by stressed ones and five of which are stressed but do not rhyme. It is also known as un-rhymed iambic pentameter. Iambic Pentameter-When put together, iambic pentameter may be defined as a line of verse consisting of five metrical feet where each foot consists of an unstressed syllable and a stressed syllable. Examples. William Shakespeare was famous for using iambic pentameter in his sonnets.

3 Blank Verse I saw you yesterday, your features grinned,
Example of Iambic Pentameter video So what does an iambic pentameter look like that is not Shakespeare? I saw you yesterday, your features grinned, some silken scarf was waving in the blue, I thought of what the rains could not rescind; our images, that in the fields imbue.

4 Blank Verse So now that we know what iambic pentameter is we can start looking at what that looks like in the Blank Verse category. Something there is that doesn’t love a wall. That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it, And spills the upper boulders in the sun; (Mending Walls by Robert Frost)
