Elements of Eloquence Single Line Challenge, Chapters 18, 19 and 20: Syllepsis, Isocolon and Enallage
This brings our single-line challenge to the halfway point! I hope we’ve been floating like a butterfly through these challenges. It’s supposed to be fun, low-pressure, no fear of failure, just a learning experience. That’s why we’re writing lines only, instead of whole poems.
That and we’re publishing a book of the best poems to be offered across our writing challenges, and we can’t finish the last challenge or write the last poem until we’ve explored all 38 rhetorical figures in our textbook: The Elements of Eloquence by Mark Forsyth.
I’ll be down in the comments section soon, writing single lines that embody – and perhaps even combine – these three very interesting rhetorical figures. Please join me!
