Synopsis
Write poetry in the great metrical tradition of Dante, Shakespeare, Dickinson, Frost, and the poets of the current Formalist revival

&break;&break;In this contemporary guide, you'll learn how to write metrical poetry in all the major forms, from blank verse and quatrains to sonnets and villanelles. Each chapter provides step-by-step instruction that's accessible and easy to understand for even the most beginning poet.

&break;&break;This book includes unique features difficult to find anywhere else:

    &break;
  • Essential but non-intimidating instruction on meter and rhyme&break;
  • Focused assignments detailing how to make your first attempt at a specific form&break;
  • Illuminating discussions on pop culture, figures of speech, difficult themes, and other important topics&break;
  • An engaging overview of poetry's history, and why it's important to learn the traditional forms
&break;&break;Complementing the instruction are many classic and contemporary poems, including recent work by Richard Wilbur, Wendy Cope, X.J. Kennedy, Dana Gioia, Rachel Hadas, Wyatt Prunty, Alicia Stallings, and many others.

&break;&break;Writing Metrical Poetry is the perfect course in metrical poetry for the person working alone or working in the classroom.
