View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This reference volume makes available for convenient personal and classroom use nearly 200 entries selected from the New Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics, with primary emphasis on poetic and prosodic terms that are most common in literary study. Included are detailed discussions of poetic forms, rhetoric, genre, and diverse topics such as performance, language poetry, and linguistics and poetics.

Each entry includes new bibliographical references, which have been updated since 1986, reflecting the current state of theory and knowledge. Despite its compact size, this New Handbook retains the detailed treatment of entries that is a hallmark of its parent Encyclopedia.

"This is an extraordinarily readable, helpful volume, and an important addition to a literature reference collection."--Academic Library Book Review

"A worthy complement to the original Encyclopedia."--Reference Books Bulletin, The American Library Association

"This edition succeeds in rendering the previous one obsolete.... Over ninety percent of the entries were extensively revised and many rewritten.... The book's great strength is its clarity of style."--Damaris Moore, Express

"Each entry points the way to further investigation and makes this an ideal tool for serious students of poetry."--The Washington Times

From the Back Cover:

"A valuable, convenient edition of the recent New Princeton Encyclopedia is intended for the general reader. Its emphasis is most appealingly on poetry--the strongly held feelings that 'poetry matters.'"--Theodore Weiss, Editor, Quarterly Review of Poetry
