Rhymes and Meters: a practical manual for versifiers
by

Publisher: The Editor Publishing Company
ISBN/ASIN: B000M8W8KK
Number of pages: 115

Description:
This book has been compiled with one end in view: to arrange in a convenient and inexpensive form the fundamentals of verse -- enough for the student who takes up verse as a literary exercise or for the older verse writer who has fallen into a rut or who is a bit shaky on theory. It is even hoped that there may be a word of help for some embryo poet.
