The New Princeton Handbook of Poetic Terms Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This reference volume makes available for convenient personal and classroom use nearly 200 entries selected from the New Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics, with primary emphasis on poetic and prosodic terms that are most common in literary study. Included are detailed discussions of poetic forms, rhetoric, genre, and diverse topics such as performance, language poetry, and linguistics and poetics.

Each entry includes new bibliographical references, which have been updated since 1986, reflecting the current state of theory and knowledge. Despite its compact size, this New Handbook retains the detailed treatment of entries that is a hallmark of its parent Encyclopedia.

Synopsis:

"A valuable, convenient edition of the recent New Princeton Encyclopedia is intended for the general reader. Its emphasis is most appealingly on poetry--the strongly held feelings that 'poetry matters.'"--Theodore Weiss, Editor, Quarterly Review of Poetry
