The Poetic Device and Effect columns are already completed.. Essential in poetry and often in prose, rhythm refers to the regular or progressive patterns of accents in lines or sentences. Rhythm helps with the flow of words. The measure of rhythm is meter. Poetry is rhythmical, imaginative language expressing the invention, taste, thought, passion, and insight of the human soul. —-Edmund Clarence Stedman. Poetry analysis is the process of investigating a poem's form, content, structural semiotics and history in an informed way, with the aim of heightening one's own and others' understanding and appreciation of the work.. The words poem and poetry derive from the Greek poiēma (to make) and poieo (to create). That is, a poem is a made thing: a creation; an artifact. "/>Poetry techniques and effects
