BeschreibungVersification: A Short Introduction is written by one of Australia's most distinguished poets. The book discusses poetic meter, and may be the only source you need. McAuley devotes a short chapter to versification based on accent, syllable count, free verse and "e;classical"e; meters, but the book as a whole focuses on metrical verse and its constant reference back to stress in normal speech - it succeeds in showing metrical verse as a natural outgrowth of what we do naturally. This dispels quickly any sense of the esoteric - poetry is of and for people in general not for a special literati. After establishing meter in the normal sphere of speech, McAuley then discusses how abstract metrical patterns are actually applied and how variety is added to avoid a sing-song effect.
