Abstract:

This book creates greater public awareness of some recent exciting findings
in the formal study of poetry. The last influential volume on the subject,
Rhythm and Meter, edited by Paul Kiparsky and Gilbert Youmans, appeared
fifteen years ago. Since that time, a number of important theoretical
developments have taken place, which have led to new approaches to the
analysis of meter. This volume represents some of the most exciting current
thinking on the theory of meter. In terms of empirical coverage, the papers
focus on a wide variety of languages, including English, Finnish, Estonian,
Russian, Japanese, Somali, Old Norse, Latin, and Greek. Thus, the
collection is truly international in its scope. The volume also contains
diverse theoretical approaches that are brought together for the first
time, including Optimality Theory (Kiparsky, Hammond), other
constraint-based approaches (Friedberg, Hall, Scherr), the Quantitative
approach to verse (Tarlinskaja, Friedberg, Hall, Scherr, Youmans)
associated with the Russian school of metrics, a mora-based approach (Cole
and Miyashita, Fitzgerald), a semantic-pragmatic approach (Fabb), and an
alternative generative approach developed in Estonia (M. Lotman and M. K.
Lotman).

The book is of interest to both linguists interested in stress and speech
rhythm, constraint systems, phrasing, and phonology-syntax interaction and
poetry, as well as to students of poetry interested in the connection
between language and literature.
