Solid hardcover.; "If we turn over the pages of any number of English poets and examine the structure of their verse, we shall find that iambic verses abound; that they are far more numerous than the other kinds; that very few long poems are written in other than iambic verses. Trochaic and anapaestic verses are very frequently used for short poems, dactylic verses rarely. The other kinds of feet enumerated above are never used exclusively to compose even very short poems, but are mixed with other feet in different kinds of verse." ; Ex-Library; iii, 162 pages.
