Anadiplosis is the repetition of the last word of a preceding clause. The word is used at the end of a sentence and then used again at the beginning of the next sentence.

Examples of Anadiplosis in Poems, Poetry and Speeches:

* He retained his virtues amidst all his - misfortunes -- misfortunes which no prudence could foresee or prevent."" Francis Bacon

* Ode to a Nightingale by John Keats
Where palsy shakes a few, sad, last grey hairs,
Where youth grows pale, and spectre-thin, and dies;
Where but to think is to be full of sorrow

* Biblical example: "In the beginning God made the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep (Gen. 1:1-2)."

More examples:

* "What I present here is what I remember of the letter, and what I remember of the letter I remember verbatim (including that awful French)." —Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita

* "For Lycidas is dead, dead ere his prime, Young Lycidas and hath not left his peer. —John Milton, Lycidas

* "Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering." —Yoda, Star Wars
