Which statement best describes the structure of “I Hear America Singing”?

B- It allows the author yo express his thoughts without rules I just took the test

d it allows the author to express his thoughts within a set of strict rules Step-by-step explanation: sry im late

The correct answer is B. In his poem “I Hear America Singing” Whitman uses the form of free verse. This means that he does not follow any apparent rhyme scheme and there is no meter. This structure allowed Whitman to express his idea freely, without having to commit to any established rhyme and meter.

The statement that best describes the structure of “I Hear America Singing” is “It allows the author to focus on a single subject throughout the poem”, it is correct because what allows the author of such opportunity is the internal style of the poem that could be reached by using a free style and the use of the Anaphora as a tool to focus on one topic. The statement 1. “It allows the author to describe several periods of time at once” is incorrect because the poem is describing actions happening at the same time, not in different periods of time. The statement 2. “I allows the author to express his thoughts without rules” is incorrect because even though the poem is written in free style, the poem is controlled using the internal rhythm created with the use of the anaphora. The use of these tools gives the form of the poem Statement 4. “It allows the author to express his thoughts within a set of strict rules” Is incorrect because the author uses free style in the poem.
