is this one

I was pregnant with poverty . Pregnant with cold and pregnant with shoes that were never bought for me. Pregnant with 5 other people in my bed and no daddy in the next room, and pregnant with hunger.

Caesura...between people?

Is it still called caesura if one character interrupts the other?

Viola: Dear lady-
Olivia: Give me leave, I beseech you.

Know, then, thyself, presume not God to scan;
The proper study of mankind is man.
Placed on this isthmus of a middle state,
A being darkly wise, and rudely great:
With too much knowledge for the sceptic side,
With too much weakness for the stoic’s pride,

A caesura
B enjambment
C blank verse
D open form
E free verse

it is a stanza written in end stopped line because of the punctuation and is free verse because it rhymes and has ten syllables to each line.

Know then thyself.

I think the first line should be "Know then thyself; presume not God to scan." Different punctuation. I also think the 2nd line should not end with a period but with a comma thereby joining it with the remaining lines.

It's probably caesura.

Enjambments don't have commas

Enjambments don't have commas to punctuate.
Open forms don't have rhythmic structure.
Blank verses don't rhyme.

I don't believe it's caesura because none of the stops are very dramatic, but upon reading it again it could be because of the whole "Know, then, thyself," and "darkly wise, and rudely great" thing
Plus semi colons usually represent a stop
Yeah I think caesura
But i'm not positive

Heart of Darkness: "I don't

Heart of Darkness:
"I don't like work-no man does- but I like what is in the work-the chance to find yourself. Your own reality- for yourself, not for others- what no other man can ever know. They can only see the mere show and never can tell what it really means."

Does anyone know what page or part of the book this is from? I'm doing a school project, but can't seem to find this...

?

So, it's like pausing during speech...? Give an example from a popular book like Harry Potter or The Fault In Our Stars. I know those books may be childish but they are the kind that I read..

It's rarely used in regular

It's rarely used in regular prose like the books you mention - apart from when the characters speak, then there might be these dramatic pauses to express the way a certain character says something.
Caesura is most commonly used in poetry and drama.

Nice

This is a well-written definition. I always encountered this in my reading but I never knew the name for it. Since all of these are so long, I think there should something that shows how to pronounce them.

Good Example

Try thinking of the show Maury, when mothers are trying to convince their ex-lovers that they were the father. Then just before Maury tells you they DNA results he goes to commercial.
