|Title:||Enjambment in Thumboo's poem "evening by batok town"||Authors:||Zhiming, B.
|Issue Date:||Dec-2013||Abstract:||Enjambment is a common technique of poetry. Enjambment breaks a line at different structural points. Based on the structure of the line break, we propose four types of enjambment, and assign a severity value to them. This allows us to quantify enjambment of a stanza or poem. By examining the enjambment of Thumboo's poem "Evening by Batok Town," we show that there is a correlation of iconicity between the nature of the imagery of a stanza and the stanza's enjambment value.||Source Title:||Asiatic||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/126425||ISSN:||19853106|
