Example text

One interesting aspect of this phonetically dominated composition of words is its similarity to the sounds of a foreign language. The accumulation of the consonants r and h, the repetition of vowels, and the introduction of some exotic words, such as "myrrah," "han," "arabistan," créate the impression that the poet is actually rendering an Arabic language.

Even rhymes based on tautology reveal subtle semantic differences. In "Marching" the word "krew" (blood) appears four times in a rhyming position, and each time its meaning varíes, depending on the context: Co? .. Co? Lezy ... Krew ...
