The Poet's Manual and Rhyming Dictionary Summary


The Poet's Manual and Rhyming Dictionary by Frances Stillman

Here is a reference tool that no poet can afford to be without. A good rhyming dictionary is an invaluable aid to anyone composing verse. Frances Stillman's dictionary is the most extensive available, yet it is compactly arranged and will enable verse writers to find the rhymes they need quickly and easily. It contains more terms than any other similar work and includes a wealth of slang and colloquial words, as well as numerous foreign expressions that have worked their way into the English language.

Stillman begins with a long introduction on prosody, providing a clear treatment of poetic forms. The various metres and stanzas used in English are described with examples, the difference between accent and stress is explained, and the nature of sprung rhythm is dealt with. Perfect rhyme and near-rhyme are fully treated, including the near-rhyme used in contemporary poetry. There is also a comprehensive index to all the terms used.
