Abstract

Anaphoric verse - a term taken from the word 'Anaphora' - is poetry that involves the "repetition of a word at the beginning of successive utterances," Motte 2007 pp. 209. Inspired by the power that such technique lends to a text, each repetition potentially a reiteration, I sought to employ it with a further constraint that I believed would serve to even better illustrate the anophora's potential for stern, powerful imagery through accretion.
