Anastrophe

Saying "life eternal " instead of "eternal life" would be a good example of an anastrophe.

Would this be included?

"We were after ever."

That's what I get for thinking, this world is fair, they let a brother steer the ship and never told him that the ship was sinkin'

Not quite, it would be something like this:

That's what I get for thinking this world is fair, a brother left to steer the ship who was never told that it was sinkin'

The adjective must come immediately after the. noum

That's what I get for thinking this world fair, a brother uninformed, left to steer the ship asinkin'.

This sentence uses anastrophe after world, brother, and ship.

Anastrophe?

"Ten thousand saw I at a glance"

Anastrophe

Can this also be considered as anastrophe? the door and opened the stairs
I said my pajamas and put on my prayers
I turned off the bed and crawled into the light
And all because you kissed ...

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 07/01/2015 - 14:50
No

But it's still funny!

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 11/30/2015 - 02:12
No

This is not an anastrophe as you are not switching the noun and adjective order, instead what you did was exchange two random words (the POV does not matter) and their positions. What you should have done was
"Opened the doors and stairs
Prayers I said, pajamas I put away
Lights I turned off and crawled off the bed I did
Kissed all because you"

Difference?

What is the difference between anastrophe and hyperbaton? The websites I have gone to sometimes use these words interchangeably, sometimes say that they are synonymous, sometimes say that anastrophe is a more specific version of hyperbaton. What's the difference? Help!

Posted by Anonymous on Wed, 02/11/2015 - 01:02
diference

your problem falls under where their saying order of words and the difference is anastrophe is an inversion of words/clauses and hyperbaton is the alteration of the order of the words in a sentence hope that help

Under Milk Wood Dylan Thomas. 'To begin at the beginning:

It is spring, moonless night in the small town, starless and bible-black, the cobblestreets silent and the hunched, courters'-and-rabbits' wood limping invisible down to the sloeblack, slow, black, crowblack, fishingboatbobbing sea.'

Anastrophe

Paradise Lost by John Milton is a chronological example of anastrophe. First there was Paradoae and then it was lost.

Yoda uses Latin syntax

The writer who created the script for Yoda arranges his words the way sentences are in Latin!

Posted by Anonymous on Sun, 07/21/2013 - 00:11
Latin and Yoda

Interesting that is.

He was a creature insatiable, roaming the night for prey.

Yoda is the anastrophe master.

Practically everything he says is an anastrophe.
"My own counsel will I keep on who is to be trained."
"Adventure. Heh. Excitement. Heh. A Jedi craves not these things."
"If you leave now, help them you could"

Posted by Anonymous on Sat, 12/08/2012 - 23:09
I don't think so

Yoda is probably using some other literary device. Anastrophe is reversing nouns and adjectives.

Posted by Anonymous on Mon, 06/10/2013 - 23:47
Correct

Master of Anastrophes, Yoda is.
