The Lost Woman
- Patricia Beer

FORM
STRUCTURE
“ Every writer nearly always has a lost woman.”
The physical structure of the poem: the length of the lines, their rhythms, their system of rhymes and repetition. In poetry, these features are usually shaped into a familiar pattern.
Structure has to do with the overall organization of lines and/or the conventional patterns of sound. A number of modern poems do not have any identifiable structure.
First Person
Narrative
Timeline/ Chronological order:
Monologue:
End Rhymes (
Example: "Who will not alter, who will not
grow
, A corpse they need never get to
know
.")

Half Rhymes (
Example:
night and hate)
Eye Rhymes (
Example:
approach and clutch)
example:
‘You did not love me.
I sacrificed too much perhaps,
I showed you the way to rise above me
And you took it. You are the ghost
With the bat-voice, my dear. I am not lost.’
Caesura
Enjambment
Example:
"I saw the back of a shocking white
Ambulance drawing away from the gate."
Example:
"Her buried. So a romance began."
Example:

But my lost woman evermore snaps
From somewhere else: ‘You did not love me.
I sacrificed too much perhaps,
I showed you the way to rise above me
And you took it. You are the ghost
With the bat-voice, my dear. I am not lost.’
Example:
"
My mother
went with no more warning."
Example:
The speaker's mother dies and returns to haunt her as a voice
