Poetry is an ancient art with deep roots in the human psyche. Scottish poet Octavia Wynne examines the elements of poetry, from its various feet, meters and lines, through its patterns, stanzas and rhymes, right up to the poetic forms themselves, with ancient and modern examples from William Shakespeare to Dr. Seuss. Wynne starts with the simple patterns of everyday language before examining feet and meter, rhythm, rhyme, punctuation, and line variation and substitution, before moving into stanzas and the most common poetic forms (from ballad to Villanelle).

This book will be of great practical value for students and poets (aspiring and accomplished). It is packed with diverse examples from more than 1,000 years of this most central and ancient literary craft.
