Alcaics

Entertainment / Literature / Alcaics: A stanza written in alcaics is written in the meter created by the Greek poet Alcaeus. This stanza-form was later used with slight changes by the poet Horace. An example in English appears in Tennyson's imitation, as appears below: O mighty-mouhted inventor of harmonies, O skill'd to sing of Time or eternity, God-gifted organ-voice of England, Milton, a name to resound for ages.
