Beschreibung

Examines the intimate life of words in verse, with all their fluctuations of meaning, mood and tone. This work argues that this examination can be done only by attending to the precise locations of words in line or stanza, and to the specific value of syllables, or by understanding the often conflicting demands of rhythm and metre.
