Echo Verse

Type:  

Structure, Other Requirement

 
Description: 

Verse written so that the last few words or syllables can be used as a response to the line. The response might be a word with the same sound as the last few syllables, even though a different spelling. Many of these usages are written to heighten comedic or tragic effects in a poem, just as the repetition of the villanelle does.
