Description - The Art Of The Poetic Line by James Longenbach

Poetry is the sound of language organized in lines.' James Longenbach opens The Art of the Poetic Line with that essential statement. Through a range of examples - from Shakespeare and Milton to Ashbery and Gluck - Longenbach describes the function of line in metered, rhymed, syllabic and free-verse poetry. That function is sonic, he argues, and our true experience of it can only be identified in relation to other elements in a poem. A vital new resource by one of America's most important critics and one of poetry's most engaging practitioners.'
