In this classic text, the distinguished poet and critic John Hollander surveys the schemes, patterns, and forms of English verse, illustrating each variation with an original and witty self-descriptive example. This substantially expanded and revised edition includes a section of examples taken from centuries of poetry that exhibit the schemes and patterns he has described.
