The Sounds of Poetry: A Brief Guide by Robert Pinsky
PN1101 .P55 1999  Check Availability
Image:The_Sounds_of_Poetry.jpg‎ From
"Poetry, like God, is in the details, and the author starts with the building blocks, the amino acids, of verse: accent and duration. Even the most jaded of readers will benefit from his syllable-by-syllable examination of Thomas Campion's 'Now Winter Nights Enlarge' and Wallace Stevens's 'Sunday Morning.' Moving on through discussions of syntax and line, meter and rhyme (or lack thereof), Pinsky enlists both the usual suspects (Shakespeare, Frost, Hardy, Eliot, Bishop) and some less customary ones (Gilbert & Sullivan, Louise Gluck, and the splendid James McMichael) to make his points. These poems are, in some sense, teaching tools for the author. Yet even his on-the-fly commentary causes us to see them in a new light." - James Marcus
