This chapter considers the metres of the Consolation’s first two poems—in elegiac couplets and hemiepes + adonic respectively—as well as the prose section between them. Attention is paid to the prosodical interplay of metre, meaning, and sound, and the interaction of these with prisoner’s physical and psychological state.

Keywords:   metre, rhythm meaning, sound, epiphany, elegiac couplets, hemiepes, adonic, muses, scenicas meretriculas, maestos modos
