The Listeners “The Listeners” by Walter Del La Mare is a verse form. which has an unexpected stoping. I will demo how the poet creates temper and atmosphere through imagination. initial rhyme. beat and rime. I felt this verse form is really unusual because it is ghostly and spooky. “The Listeners” is about a “traveller” who comes to an empty house in the wood floor and keeps on strike harding on the door inquiring ” I s there anybody at that place? ” but no 1 replies and he is some how perplexed. This verse form is really skittish because of the initial rhyme used: “his Equus caballus in the silence chomped the grasses” .
The mod of the verse form is really intense and the strength is created by the imagination used by the poet. The ambiance in this verse form is unusual but make bolding as there are ever inquiries left unreciprocated which the reader has to seek and work out. The manner in the verse form is in narrative manner because there are no poetries and reads like a narrative. The beat is 12 and 7 beats in every 2 lines this means that there is a beat patterns which means every 2nd line rimes. This verse form is written narrative. which means that the reader observes the “Traveller” as if from afar.
This verse form is full of great initial rhyme such as “forests ferny floor” the repitition is in the “F” . I think it is to do you notice that the forest Idaho soft and soundless. Other illustrations are “silence surged softly” . This is another good illustration of initial rhyme as it makes me believe that the silence is billowing back when the traveler is gone because there is no 1 left alive. My decision for “The Listeners” is that it is a good verse form with great initial rhyme as it makes the verse form a bitty spot more chilling.
