What is this technique called in literature? But her proud hart doe thou a little shake And that high look, with which she doth comptroll All this worlds pride bow to a baser make, And al her faults in thy black booke enroll. New York: MacMillan Children's Books, 2000. But, Donne stuck to the original.
