This is the latest edition of the definitive reference work on poetics. Anything you want to know about the technical aspects of poetry is contained herein (and exhaustively). Need a refresher on the difference between metaphor and simile or between metonymy and synecdoche? What about Arabic, Bengali, or Celtic prosody? What even is paranomasia? Zeugma? Included too are short(ish) definitive accounts and histories of Beat poetry, Zulu poetry and everything in between. All your poetic questions answered (at length) in one volume. Required nepotism disclosure: the contributor with the unpronounceable name who wrote the entry on “Sound” works here and wrote this biased review. ~ Reviewed by Dafydd Wood
