Excerpt from A First Book of Poetics for Colleges and Advanced Schools Scansion. The scansion of English verse is based chiefly upon stress, or accent, not, as in Latin and Greek, wholly upon quantity. In this instance the reader follows the normal pronunciation of these words in prose, paying little attention to the length of the vowels. Metre and Rhythm. Rhythm is the recurrence of stress at intervals; metre is the regular, or measured, recurrence of stress. A verse (a single line of poetry) may contain from one to seven stresses. Monometer (mo-nom-e-ter) is a verse of one stress, rarely used in English poetry except in sequence with longer verses.
