Dictionary of Poetic Terms (03 Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Formerly The Longman Dictionary of Poetic Terms, this newly updated version contains over 1,600 entries on the devices, techniques, history, theory, and terminology of poetry from the Classical period to the present. To bring it up-to-date, the authors have added fifty new entries and examples. The Dictionary of Poetic Terms is compact enough for classroom use, but thorough enough to be the definitive reference handbook for poets and scholars, and the many writers who are both.

Synopsis:

The definitive reference guide to poetry and poetic terms, with more than 1,600 entries on the devices, techniques, history, theory, and terminology of poetry from the Classical period to the present.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 428-434).
