This book is a thorough yet concise handbook for reading and writing metrical poetry Aspects of meter rhyme and music are broken down into short digestible chapters with excellent in text examples Oliver s reading of metrical irregularities is fantastic and her feel for the way form supports content leads to some insightful readings of well loved poems My only complaint for this book is that I found the anthology section of this book somewhat lackluster generally Oliver tended toward the well known and conventional when curating this section the the detriment of uality I think Why for example did she choose George Herbert s The Flower rather than his superior Jordan II or Love III Robert Louis Stevenson s Reuiem is another odd choice was this poem rather than any one of his delightful and metrically vigorous poems for children chosen simply because it is solemn or serious Why choose God s Grandeur over Pied Beauty Why in Heaven s name include that dreadful Robert Burns poem I would recommend this book wholeheartedly to anyone who wanted to deepen their reading of metrical verse but not without also leading the way toward a exacting anthology Paisaje de Otoño poems in the English language from Shakespeare to Edna St Vincent Millay to Robert Frost With a Eksyneen muistikirja poet's ear and a Afternoons with the Blinds Drawn poet's grace of expression Oliver sh.

review Rules for the Dance A Handbook for Writing and Reading Metrical Verse ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub True ease in writing comes from art not chance As those move easiest who have learn'd to dance wrote Alexander Pope The dance in the case of Oliver's brief and luminous book refers to the interwoven pleasures of sound.
