Iambic verse

A Course by Georgios
"

In this course, we shall examine the various forms of Iambic verse. The following text is an excerpt from Wikipedia, explaining its structure. ---- Iamb An iamb /ˈaɪæm/ or iambus is a metrical foot used in various types of poetry. Originally the term referred to one of the feet of the quantitative meter of classical Greek prosody: a short syllable followed by a long syllable (as in "delay"). This terminology was adopted in the description of accentual-syllabic verse in English, where it refers to a foot comprising an unstressed syllable followed by a stressed syllable (as in a-bove). source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iamb_%28poetry%29
