An indispensable guide for poets, readers, students, and teachers. "The Poem s Heartbeat "may well be the finest general book available on prosody. "Library Journal "(starred review) A provocative, definitive manual. "Publishers Weekly"Finally back in print, this slender, user-friendly guide to rhyme, rhythm, meter, and form sparks intuitive and technical lightning-flashes for poets and readers curious to know a poem s inner workings. Clear, good-humored, and deeply readable, Alfred Corn s book is "the" modern classic on prosodythe art and science of poetic meter.Each of the book s ten chapters is a progressive, step-by-step presentation rich with examples to illustrate concepts such as line, stress, scansion marks, slant rhyme, and iambic pentameter. By the book s end, noted a rave review in "The Boston Review," Corn, magi-teacher and impeccable guide, has taught the novice to become artist and magician. "The Poem s Heartbeat" also includes a selected bibliography and encourages readers and students to carry their investigations further."The word line comes from the Latin" linea," itself derived from the word for a thread of linen. We can look at the lines of poetry as slender compositional units forming a weave like that of a textile. Indeed, the word text has the same origin as the word textile. It isn t difficult to compare the compositional process to weaving, where thread moves from left to right, reaches the margin of the text, then shuttles back to begin the next unit . . ." "
