rythme, mètre, moyen/stratagème littéraire


Explanation:
beat: rythme (comme le suggère si bien notre consoeur) S'applique aussi en écriture (le "rythme" d'un poème, d'un texte...)
Aussi (plus rare): la "musicalité"

meter:
en musique: métronome
en poésie: mètre

literary device - en autant que je puisse en juger, selon le contexte:
moyen littéraire
stratagème littéraire
instrument/outil littéraire
figure de style
