How would you analyze Elinor Wylie's "Let no charitable hope" in terms of structure, tone, imagery, and language?
Wylie's poem is structured in three stanzas of four lines each. The rhyme scheme in each stanza is end rhyme in an abab pattern (e.g. stanza two: alone, beset, stone, get). The metrical structure is iambic tetrameter, although the first two lines incorporate syllabic variation and read more naturally like trimeter.
