Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • monostrophic In prosody, consisting of a succession of systems or strophes all of which are of the same metrical form; of or pertaining to such a succession of systems. Monostrophic composition is a subdivision of antistrophic composition, and is opposed to composition by pericopes. Most English poems which are composed in strophes or stanzas are monostrophic (as, for instance, our ordinary ballads, short- and long-meter hymns, etc.) — composition by pericopes being limited to imitations of the Greek dramatists and lyric poets. See systematic.
