Show Summary Details


The Introduction discusses the issue of repetition and rhyme and gives a brief history of rhyme in English-language poetry. The book approaches intention as a complex effect in poetry, and in many ways a paradoxical one; but it also assumes that this intention's presence in writing — its force in the words of the texts that are poems — is a real and not a fanciful phenomenon.

Keywords: rhyme; repitition; theory; poetry; intention
