Sample text

111 "Und ich sah ihn mit Verwundrung an" (Heine, "Ich rief den Teufel . " 2). A more detailed explanation of the principles of analyses and a discussion of more complicated cases are given in chapter 2. A form even looser than the dolnik is found in the poem "The Vanishing Red" by Frost. In this poem two interpretations are possible, modelling a greater or a lesser degree of regularity. If we accept the first interpretation, the poem resembles a dolnik-4, but its form is somewhat looser: the intervals between adjacent ictuses vary from one to three syllables.

The liquids and nasals are more likely to form a syllable (1) when followed by another word beginning with a consonant rather than with a vowel or an [hi, < previous page page_21 next page > < previous page page_22 next page > Page 22 particularly in the same phrase (cf. [a] "The people I will accept whom he admits," but [b] "Titus Andronicus, the people of Rome . 1:222, 179]; in [a] "people" is disyllabic, in [b] it is monosyllabic because it is followed by a preposition beginning with a vowel); (2) in a shorter rather than in a longer word (in "marble" rather than in "invisible"); and (3) in a phrase-final, syntactically more independent word rather than in a mid-phrase, syntactically subordinate word.

For example, an assumption of an iambic pattern would yield " . . " but a ternary assumption yields " . . " There are no unsurpassable boundaries between the four general systems of versification listed above; intermediary forms exist in practically every literature. Such forms are particularly frequent during the earlier formation of a literary tradition and during periods of the loosening and changing of a canon. One example of a transitional form, from syllabo-tonic to syllabic, that tended to develop in the English Jacobean verse is the poetry of John Donne, particularly his "Satyres" (Tarlinskaja and Teterina 1974).
