Poetic form is more flexible in modernist and post-modernist poetry and continues to be less structured than in previous literary eras. Many modern poets eschew recognizable structures or forms and in free verse. Free verse is, however, not "formless" but composed of a series of more subtle, more flexible prosodic elements.[81] Thus poetry remains, in all its styles, distinguished from prose by form;[82] some regard for basic formal structures of poetry will be found in all varieties of free verse, however much such structures may appear to have been ignored.[83] Similarly, in the best poetry written in classic styles there will be departures from strict form for emphasis or effect.[84]
