Summary

Metre, Rhythm, Free Verseis designed to explain the most important component of verse--its sound. This book provides all of the tools necessary to understanding poetry and poetry criticism, while clarifying and making accessible a number of technical terms which could otherwise be both intimidating and confusing. In a manner which is both unpretentious and enthusiastic, Philip Hosbaum defines the difference between metre and rhythm, and provides newer and more precise definitions for terms such as blank verse, sprung verse and free verse. From the bob-wheel stanza to the iambus, from the Spenserian sonnet to modern rap, this comprehensive yet succinct volume covers the many terms and ideas which are essential to a fuller appreciation of poetry. In addition to providing this indispensable foundation for further reading,Metre, Rhythm, Free Versealso introduces its readers to a selection of key poets from all ages. A welcome remedy to the complexity ofpoetical terminology, this book proves an invaluable introduction and an essential guide.
