Encyclopedia

  • Dactylic hexameter (also known as "heroic hexameter") is a form of meter in poetry or a rhythmic scheme. In strict dactylic hexameter, each of these feet would be dactyl, but classical meter allows for the substitution of a spondee in place of a dactyl in most positions. — “Dactylic hexameter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia”, en.wikipedia.org
  • An example of dactylic meter is the first line of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem Evangeline, which is in dactylic hexameter: Dactyls are the metrical foot of Greek elegiac poetry, which followed a line of dactylic hexameter with dactylic pentameter. [edit] References. — “Dactyl (poetry) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia”, en.wikipedia.org
  • Dactylic tetrameter is a metre in poetry. It refers to a line consisting of four dactylic feet. " Tetrameter" simply means four poetic feet. Each foot has a stressed syllable followed by two unstressed syllables, the opposite of an anapest, sometimes called antidactylus to reflect this fact. — “Dactylic tetrameter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia”, en.wikipedia.org
