Summary
Though many recent poets insist on their poetry's "musical" qualities, few offer linguistically satisfying explanations of that "music." This book helps to fill that gap. It is a linguistically based study of rhythmic structures, and of the nature of rhythm, in the free verse of T.S. Eliot, Robert Lowell, and James Wright. It was written for accessibility to readers who, although not necessarily specialists in linguistic poetics, have some knowledge of language and poetry
