Page 60 - Isocolon ° the figure comprised of cola (discussed above) * which consist of a virtually equal number of syllables. To effect the isocolon we shall not count the syllables — for that is surely childish — but experience and practice will bring such a facility that by a sort of instinct we can produce again a colon of equal length to the one before it, as follows : " The father was meeting death in battle ; the son was planning marriage at his home. These omens wrought grievous disasters.
