    How does Browning use structure and form to emphasise the Duke's power and control?
    Thank you much appreciated

    The "epic" poem structure shows how the Duke has control over everything as nothing stops him.
    The enjambment and caesura show how he has complete power as he can stop and change the poem's flow at will.

    I did my English lit GCSE last year so my advice might be a little rusty but from what I remember...

    the fact the poem is written as one long stanza shows how the duke values his own voice alone and will listen to no one else despite the presence of a guest ( I think)
