Inactive
Emily K.
Answer:

A sonnet is always comprised of 14 lines, but additionally, a Shakespearean Sonnet is also characterized by its rhyming scheme (ABAB CDCD EFEF GG), its iambic pentameter (a pattern of unstressed and stressed syllables), with often a change in tone, referred to as the volta (usually around line 9), and an ending with a couplet, that serves to either summarize or emphasize the main point of the poem.

Question:

What was Edgar Allan Poe's thoughts on poetry?

Inactive
Emily K.
Answer:

Poe believed that poetry fills the gap between the heavenly element, beauty, and earthly elements, such as satisfaction of the intellect [truth], operation of conscience [duty], and excitement of the heart [passion]. This was important because Poe also believed beauty to be the most important thing, as it elevated the soul, and was unattainable on Earth. (So, the fact that poetry fills the gap between what is unattainable and was is attainable gave poetry greater significance.)
