Through three editions over more than four decades, The Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics has built an unrivaled reputation as the most comprehensive and authoritative reference for students, scholars, and poets on all aspects of its subject: history, movements, genres, prosody, rhetorical devices, critical terms, and more. Now this landmark work has been thoroughly revised and updated for the twenty-first century. Compiled by an entirely new team of editors, the fourth edition--the first new edition in almost twenty years--reflects recent changes in literary and cultural studies, providing up-to-date coverage and giving greater attention to the international aspects of poetry, all while preserving the best of the previous volumes
At well over a million words and more than 1,000 entries, the Encyclopedia has unparalleled breadth and depth. Entries range in length from brief paragraphs to major essays of 15,000 words, offering a more thorough treatment--including expert synthesis and indispensable bibliographies--than conventional handbooks or dictionaries.
This is a book that no reader or writer of poetry will want to be without.

Ever since the first edition of this work, in 1965, The Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics has been a comprehensive and authoritative reference work valued by students, teachers, and poets. Its intention has been to be worldwide in scope, concerning the "history, theory, technique and criticism of poetry from the earliest times to the present." Entries have included terms and concepts; genres and forms; periods, schools, and movements; the poetry of nations, regions, and languages; and poetry in relation to other cultural forms, disciplines, and social practices such as linguistics, religion, and science. This new edition edited by Greene (English & comparative literature, Stanford Univ.) and others includes 1100 entries that range from brief overviews to in-depth essays of 15,000 words, including 250 new entries and many revised and "reconceived" ones. Among the new entries are discussions of the Black Mountain school; écriture; fractal verse; gay, lesbian, and Nuyorican poetry; poiësis; poetry slams; Bosnian poetry; popular and modern poetry of China; and much more. The bibliographies included with each essay are also fully updated. Contributors come from major colleges and universities worldwide. VERDICT This edition will be welcomed by all readers of poetry. It provides so many new essays and updates, and, finally, has an index, which is useful as the Encyclopediadoes not include entries on individual poets, but rather discusses them in the context of the larger topics to which they are related. Also beneficial is the new page layout that is easier to read and more conducive to browsing, Highly recommended. —Marcia Welsh, Dartmouth Coll., Hanover, NH
