    Hey

    Is anyone doing Johne Donne poetry?
    On "The Canonization" i understand that there is a rhyme scheme of ABBACCCAA. An alternative quatraine- followed by a tercet? and a rhyming couplet.

    What's a tercet? Or have I spelt it wrong because that's what I have wriiten down and I don't know what it means

    A tercet is three lines of poetry forming a stanza. There are other types of tercet which include the enclosed tercet (where the lines rhyme in a ba pattern), and a terza rima where the aba pattern of a verse is continued in the next versy by rhyming th unrhymeed line).

    Don't anything specific about Johne Donne's poetry though sorry!

    thanx for the help

    I tried spelling it on the computer and it kept putting one of those zig-zaggy red lines under it!

    Doesn't matter. Just remember that the irregular rhyme scheme, in general, reflects the banter of argument.

    I found a great site for that poem, as I didn't have much notes on it:

    http://www.literatureclassics.com/essays/860/

    It really helped me as it dealt with the meaning of the poem; structure - language - form ect

    hope it helps for you too

    extasie is also very confusing, possibly because of the lack of defined structure.....i find more rhythmical poems like the Songs easier...i would love to get a question on Loves alchymie, depressing poem but great to analyse!
