Dear Prof. Flinker,

Thanks so much for this! The term 'pause' here, would you agree, refers to, in effect, the break between stanzas; Pause is an alternative term for Stanza?

  In the preface to Samson Agonistes, Milton speaks of "being divided into Stanzas or Pauses, they may be call'd Allæostropha" (Shawcross 574).
