Shakespeare wrote his plays in iambic pentameter.  Watch the video below to learn more about what iambic pentameter is.  Take notes as you watch.  In addition, try to write 2 lines in iambic pentameter yourself.

A foot is an iamb if it consists of one unstressed syllable followed by a stressed syllable, so the word remark is an iamb. Pent means five, so a line of iambic pentameter consists of five iambs – five sets of unstressed syllables followed by stressed syllables.


Example 

Here are two examples from Romeo and Juliet. ('bold' means stressed and 'italics' means unstressed)

My grave is like to be my wedding bed.

But soft, what light through yonder window breaks?

Hope this helped you. Please choose my answer as best. 


Thanks
