    A particular feature of the alliteration in Gawain and the Green Knight is the so-called Bob and Wheel. The poet breaks up his alliterative lines in variable-length groups and ends these with a rhyming section of five lines, in which the 'bob' is a very short line, sometimes of only two syllables, followed by the 'wheel,' longer lines with internal rhyme. Often, the bob and wheel is a place for the poet to say something significant, so pay attention to it.
