Since 1968 Lewis Turco's Book of Forms has been a staple in the libraries of writers, teachers, poets, and others who care about the craft of poetry. Now Turco has expanded and updated his classic once again, adding many new forms, including the ghazal, rubliw, double dactyl, various Japanese forms other than the haiku and tanka, Clerihew, amphigory, backwoods boast, and quaternion. It now includes six in-depth prosodic essays and an entirely new discussion of the rules of scansion. The Elements of Poetry section has been reorganized into three genres: Dramatic Poetry, Lyric Poetry, and Narrative Poetry.
