Summary

A best-selling introduction to poetry for more than fifty years, Perrine's Sound and Sense : An Introduction to Poetry succinctly covers the basics of poetry with detailed chapters on the elements of poetry, unique chapters on evaluating poetry, exemplary selections, and exercises and study questions that invite students into careful study. Thomas R. Arp and Greg Johnson have assiduously continued the Perrine tradition over several recent editions. Every chapter introduction in this compact and concise anthology bears the mark of Laurence Perrine's crisp, clean, and descriptive prose, and every poem selected as an example is not only a perfect illustration of the concept at hand but also a remarkable work in its own right.

"The response was overwhelming from the students. They LOVE the depth and the feeling of poetry that Perrine has . . . Perrine oozes the deep love of poetry."

"An excellent anthology; eclectic and unpretentious, . . . Sound and Sense continues to outrank its competition!"

"The beauty of the Perrine text has always been that, along with crisp, clear definitions, it provides a wealth and variety of selections, classic and contemporary."

"This is the finest poetry textbook I've seen. The explanations are very clear to students, it is superbly organized and compact."
