A caesura is an abrupt pause in the middle of a line of poetry. Sometimes it serves as a form of punctuation at the end of a phrase or sentence. There are two types of caesurae. A masculine caesura is one that occurs immediately after a stressed syllable while a feminine caesura happens after an unstressed syllable. The caesura is such an important part of poetry that several literary and poetry magazines, such as the University of Delaware's literary magazine, are called "Caesura."
