The plain style, Puritans felt, was much more effective in revealing Gods truth than the ornate style. Despite the fact that the style used by Puritan writers now seems hard to read, it was once considered simple and direct in the 1600s. Bradstreets Use of Plain Style Although

Anne Bradstreets Upon the Burning of Our House contains some figurative language, it is a good example of the plain style. Plain Style vs. Ornate Style Ornate Style Shabby but beloved, my shoes house my feet as they carry me from place to place.

Plain Style My shoes are old, brown, kind of wornout, but comfortable for walking around in. The pen spills ink-blood The pen is a blue as it brings words to ballpoint with a leaky life. tip.

Inversion Bradstreet also used inversion. Inversion is the reversal of the normal word order in a sentence or phrase. Write this in it is not in your notes. Inversion For example, Bradstreet writes I

wakened was with thundring noise instead of I was wakened with thundring noise. Inversion is often used to make a poems rhyme scheme work out or to maintain a fixed meter. Rhyme Rhyme is the repetition of vowel sounds in accented syllables and succeeding

syllables. Types of rhyme include end rhyme internal rhyme approximate, or slant, rhyme Rhyme Scheme End

rhyme refers to rhyming words at the end of lines. End rhymes usually follow a regular pattern within a poem, called its rhyme scheme. Love is not all: it is not meat nor drink A Nor slumber nor a roof against the rain; B Nor yet a floating spar to men that sink A

And rise and sink and rise and sink again . .B Rhythm and Meter Rhythm is the alternation of stressed and unstressed syllables in language. Rhythm occurs naturally in all forms of spoken and written language. Meter is the regular pattern of stressed and unstressed syllables in poetry. One
