Like the famous quote, 'Now I am become death, destroyer of world' when is it allowed to use 'am' before any verb?

  • You can't use 'am' before any verb. 'Is become' is a special usage - see the linked questions. Feb 25 '19 at 9:45
  • I know it is not allowed in general use. But I have seen the use of 'am' in this unorthodox manner in multiple places. That's why I am asking when is this allowed? Feb 26 '19 at 22:14
