Stanzas are defined as a system of grouping and division in poetry of the lines of a poem. These stanzas usually consist of lines of words, grouped between four lines and sometimes many more, and are characterized by the similar pattern in length, meter and rhyming style between the lines. Stanzas are very much like the paragraphs that appear in prose but in order for them to be cohesive, and work as a grouping, all the lines in a stanza must match in the structures mentioned before.
There are different styles of stanza formation, especially regarding the number of lines that will be placed in each grouping. This gives the poet the freedom to establish his/her own style of writing, when compared to other poets, and express his/her meaning through the particular stanzas that he/she chooses to use. Length of stanzas may be varied by a poet, depending on his/her purpose. As such, the answer to your question is:
1. A stanza of two lines: couplet
2. A stanza of four lines: quatrain
3. A stanza of six lines: sestet
4. A stanza of eight lines: octave.
1. A stanza of two lines -Couplet
2. A stanza of four lines- Quatrain
3. A stanza of six lines- Sestet
4. A stanza of eight lines- Octave.
My Question: Is the Gender an Issue in society? Consider an essay question you are currently working on or a question you developed or identified from doing the activities at the end of Chapter 4
Once you have your question, discuss and make notes in the response to the following points:
1 What are the important terms in your question and how would you clarify them?
2 Why is your question important and interesting to answer?
3 Summarize two or more perspectives you have researched in response to your question. What does each of them conclude, what reasons and evidence do they use to support their arguments, and how strong do you think these are?
4 At this stage, what do you think your main conclusion should contain? This will include a judgment, or answer, in response to your question, and the main reasons and evidence which you think justify it.

Read the following passage in which an aunt is speaking with a nephew who has stolen money. “How could this have happened? What will you do? Oh, I am so worried for you,” Aunt Amrita said, her voice trembling as tears rolled down her cheeks. “Please, return the money and beg forgiveness. You don’t know what they are capable of.

Reflective essays explore what the author believes and the origins of those beliefs. Which sentences in this excerpt from Amy Tan's "Mother Tongue" indicate where Tan’s beliefs came from? You should know that my mother's expressive command of English belies how much she actually understands. She reads the Forbes report, listens to Wall Street Week, converses daily with her stockbroker, reads all of Shirley MacLaine’s books with ease—all kinds of things I can't begin to understand. Yet some of my friends tell me they understand fifty percent of what my mother says. Some say they understand eighty to ninety percent. Some say they understand none of it, as if she were speaking pure Chinese. But to me, my mother's English is perfectly clear, perfectly natural. It's my mother tongue. Her language, as I hear it, is vivid, direct, full of observation and imagery. That was the language that helped shape the way I saw things, expressed things, made sense of the world.

However, it is at the very end where Tan explains where her own views of the world come from. She argues that her perspective, her views on the world and her beliefs all come from her "mother tongue," which is the way her mother speaks English.
