5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Kina Monroe on March 25, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Metre, Rhythm and Verse Form gave me all the tools necessary to understanding poetry and poetry criticism. This book helped to clarify a number of abstruse terms which would have been otherwise both frightening and VERY confusing.
