caesura affects the rhythm of speech. read on for more please!


So, a caesura is a pause in a line of poetry.
Sometimes it may act as a punctuation like a colon or semi-colon, a comma or a full stop.
It will add special effects to the text you are reading.For example-

"Brigeta won the race, although Steven came last..... Steven had broken both his ankles"

please note that ... is the caesura that may be added while you are speaking or narrating.

hope that helped
