"If" – Essay Beginnings


How does Rudyard Kipling make his poem, “If”, more memorable for the reader?
  • Point
  • Example
  • Explanation
Kipling makes his poem more memorable when he makes use of a definite rhyme scheme. In the poem, every second line rhymes, so, for example, “master” rhymes with “disaster”, and “ “aim” rhymes with “same”. This makes the poem more memorable because the rhymed words stick in the reader’s mind more.
