Accent on Meter: A Handbook for Readers of Poetry
Authors: Joseph Powell, Mark Halperin
Accent on Meter: A Handbook for Readers of Poetry offers practical ways of teaching students about the close connections between the meaning, rhythm, and meter in poetry. The major assumption of the book is that a close reading of a poem—one that explores the nuances of structure—can increase one’s appreciation and enjoyment of poetry. In the words of the authors, “What the poem is about and how it explores that material is more important than the technical means it uses. Yet by focusing on those means, we can perhaps get closer to finding out why we felt what we felt. That process can deepen our reading, enhance it, complicate it.”
