Title: Meter in Poetry
Subtitle: A New Theory
Written By: Nigel Fabb
Morris Halle
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/us/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521713252
Description:

Many of the great works of world literature are composed in metrical verse,
that is, in lines which are measured and patterned. Meter in Poetry: A New
Theory is the first book to present a single simple account of all known
types of metrical verse, which is illustrated with detailed analyses of
poems in many languages, including English, Spanish, Italian, French,
classical Greek and Latin, Sanskrit, classical Arabic, Chinese, Vietnamese,
and Latvian. This outstanding contribution to the study of meter is aimed
both at students and scholars of literature and languages, as well as
anyone interested in knowing how metrical verse is made.
