Oxford Dictionary of Rhymes Reviews

The natural partner for a thesaurus, it might actually inspire you to start writing verse of your own, even if you hadn't considered it before. Alastair Mabbott, The Herald (Glasgow) The introduction by John Lennard is worth the price of the book alone. It should be required reading by aybody who considers themselves to be a versifier or lover of poetry. Charles Howard, Writer's Forum
