9780300088328: Rhyme's Reason: A Guide to English Verse (Yale Nota Bene)

"Discussions of prosody usually make for yawns and heavy eyelids, but John Hollander's book, now usefully augmented, is a sparkling performance. He defines and illustrates the forms and means of English verse in such a way as to teach us, also, the spirit of play which animates even the gravest poem." Richard Wilbur From reviews of the earlier editions: "The most useful guide of its kind in years. It is at once comprehensive, lucid, concise, and fun." G. E. Murray, Chicago Sun-Times "Marvelously comprehensive, clarifying and useful... also a delight to read." John Reardon, Los Angeles Times Book Review"

Vom Verlag:

In his classic text Rhyme's Reason the distinguished poet and critic John Hollander surveys the schemes, patterns, and forms of English verse, illustrating each variation with an original and witty self-descriptive example. In this substantially expanded and revised edition, Hollander adds a section of examples taken from centuries of poetry that exhibit the patterns he has described.
