9780773521612: The Strict Metrical Tradition: Variations in the Literary Iambic Pentameter From Sidney and Spenser to Matthew Arnold

Keppel-Jones's study focuses on a period of 275 years, during which iambic pentameter variations were conducted with special precision. Representative blocks of verse are chosen from major poets in original authoritative editions, and each variation is analysed on the basis of all cases of that variation. To give precision to certain of the principles, Keppel-Jones follows the linguist Bruce Hayes' definitions of boundaries between word-groups, but handles this material in such a way as to be understood by the general reader. Keppel-Jones found that the practical result of this study is a new metre that he allows him to apply the principles of iambic variation to the anapest. His fascinating and original approach to iambic pentameter will appeal to scholars in the field and also to people with a general interest in poetry.

Review:

"A unique and original contribution to the field. Keppel-Jones' analysis is often astounding." Ronald Marken, Department of English, University of Saskatchewan "Genuinely valuable and original work in the field of metrics. It represents a major contribution to research in a field that seems in general to be characterized by labourious re-inventions of the wheel. Keppel-Jones' double-footed approach to metrical practice is genuinely illuminating, and his systematic relation of such practices to particular rhythmic effects is novel and convincing." Peter Groves, Department of English, Monash University
