Page lxxxii - French not merely pronounce these e's, but dwell upon them, and give them long and accented notes in the music. This recognition is absolutely necessary to the measure of the verse, which, depending solely upon the number of the syllables in a line, and having no relation to the position of accent, is entirely broken up and destroyed when these syllables are omitted. And yet when they declaim, the French omit these final e's without mercy, producing, to English ears, a hideous rough shapeless unmusical...
