These features, however, despite what Hunt himself says, might be found in many passages of Pope. Much more surprising are those places in which the usual devices for containing a stressed syllable in a surprising place are dropped. In Pope, where we find a stress on 3, 5, 7 or 9, this is almost always as part of a sequence of three stressed syllables.

Hunt is introducing tremors and wobbles into a couplet structure which, while it has begun to ramble rather than to march, remains essentially within the framework of English couplet-writing established from Waller onward.
