Abstract [en]

The metron (Gk. μέτρον) in poetic meter refers to the unit that is repeated in the line of verse (stichic verse), or that otherwise recurs in a stable shape across stanzas and poems (lyric verse). The size of a metron is either a single verse foot (dactyl, spondee), or a pair of verse feet (trochaic, iambic, anapestic), within which some stable property occurs.
