  • 5. Rhyme: is a repetition of similar sounds in two or morewords, most often at the end of lines in poems
  • 6. An example of Dramatic monologue:• William Blake’s The Chimney Sweeper
  • 7. When my mother died I was very young, And my father sold me while yet my tongue, Could scarcely cry weep weep weep weep, So your chimneys I sweep & in soot I sleep.
  • 8. Theres little Tom Dacre, who cried when his head That curled like a lambs back was shavd, so I said.Hush Tom never mind it, for when your heads bare,You know that the soot cannot spoil your white hair
  • 9. And so he was quiet. & that very night.As Tom was a sleeping he had such a sight That thousands of sweepers Dick, Joe, Ned, & JackWere all of them lockd up in coffins of black,
  • 10. And by came an Angel who had a bright keyAnd he opend the coffins & set them all free. Then down a green plain leaping laughing they runAnd wash in a river and shine in the Sun.
  • 11. Then naked & white, all their bags left behind.They rise upon clouds, and sport in the wind.And the Angel told Tom, if hed be a good boy, Hed have God for his father & never want joy.
  • 12. And so Tom awoke and we rose in the darkAnd got with our bags & our brushes to work. Tho the morning was cold, Tom was happy & warm So if all do their duty, they need not fear harm
