Advertisement Remove all ads


Repetition is a technique used to draw a person’s attention to a certain idea. Think about school. If a teacher wants to get her point across, is she going to say it once? No. She is going to repeat it multiple times so it begins to sink in. The same works with poetry. While the use of repetition doesn’t necessarily mean a poem is wonderful, it does help it to stand out. Sometimes a little repetition goes a long way. But too much repetition can make the poem boring to read, so it’s a delicate balance. This technique can be used in a variety of ways:

  • A word is repeated throughout the poem.
  • A phrase is repeated.
  • An entire line is repeated.
