Humans are creatures of rhythm and repetition.

From our breath to our gait: rhythm is central to our experience, and often brings us pleasure.

We can find pleasure in the rhythm of a song, or even the rows of an orchard. Of course, too much repetition can also backfire.

David Silverstein describes what poetic repetition is and why it works.
