9783906760001: Poetic Rhythm: Structure and Performance: An Empirical Study in Cognitive Poetics

This book attempts to solve the yet unsolved mystery: what are the intuitive rules of versification followed by poets and readers in writing and reading poetry? It performs a small Copernican Revolution, shifting the constraints from verse structure to the reader's «Rhythmic Competence». It confers a psychological meaning upon the phrase «rhythmical performance», that allows us to make predictions concerning the rhythmical performance of a metrically complex line. The theoretical discussions are supported by empirical research, in which readings by leading British actors and colleagues from the academy are submitted to an instrumental investigation.

About the Author:

The Author: Professor Reuven Tsur teaches Cognitive Poetics and Hebrew Literature at Tel Aviv University. He is Middle East Vice President of the International Association of Empirical Aesthetics. He has published fourteen books and over forty articles on literary theory. His books in English include Toward a Theory of Cognitive Poetics (1992), What Makes Sound Patterns Expressive - The Poetic Mode of Speech Perception (1992), On Metaphoring (1987), The Road to Kubla Khan - A Cognitive Approach (1987), and A Perception-Oriented Theory of Metre (1977).

Review:

“This work represents in scope, depth, and precision of aesthetic analysis the single most important body of research into the rhythmical performance of poetry.”  —S. J. Willett, Journal of Pragmatics

“By virtue of applying his cognitive assumptions to the study of poetic prosody (meter, rhythm, musicality, rhyme) Prof. Tsur is recognized as one of the leading researchers in the world in this field.”  —Israel Prize Committee

“[Tsur] has done powerful experiments, challenging the leading model in the field: the Keyser–Halle transformational model for English stress. Despite my admiration for that model, I have to admit that Tsur’s challenge is quite formidable.”  —Prof. Norman Holland, Florida University
