5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 31 Oct. 2001
Format: Paperback
Offering a useful way into studying and enjoying the rhythms of English poetry, Attridge introduces in a clear and concise way the main approaches to examining verse form. From an explanation of the basic units of syllables and stress, Attridge discusses the complexities of verse form in an accessible way, illustrating his explanation with constant references to actual verse. As a broad study of verse and rhythm it is an invaluable introduction and while its technicality and depth make it excellent for the keenly interested, it does require concentration!
