    Wait, an entire thread dedicated to bettering grammar? Yay I love this, where have you been ? I have so much to ask if that's ok? I've been told constantly that my essay for AS English literature does not make any sense. Enlighten me, teach me please! I am sensitive at times however I am all for improvement and constructive criticism.

    Guys can you explain this technique in Emily Bronte's poem.

    Clouds beyond clouds above me. (What is that called)
    Waste beyond waste below (What is this? and placing them both together is it juxtaposition or parallelism?)

    Also what is this in Lord Tennyson's Break, Break, Break poem

    O,well for the fisherman's boy.
    That he shouts with his sister at play!
    O, well for the sailor lad
    That he sings in his boat on the bay

    I know it is repetition. But what is that specific repetition when you repeat the beginning of a sentence e.g. I will, I will, I will ? Is it Juxtaposition too? And would the end rhymes of play and bay be a full rhyme or half rhyme?

    Thank you.
