"The Poem's Heartbeat... may well be the finest general book available on prosody." --Library Journal (starred review) "This book shatters stereotypes equating the study of prosody with poetry boot camp and instead introduces the fine art of versification. In clear bell tones...nuances of rhyme, rhythm, and meter are conveyed in precise, tactile language...By the book's end, Corn, magi-teacher and impeccable guide, has taught the novice to become artist and magician." --The Boston Review
