The poem's heartbeat : a manual of prosody by Alfred Corn( Book )

21 editions published between 1869 and 2008 in English and held by 1,009 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This introduction to prosody--the art and science of metrical composition in poetry--teaches the reader how good poems work. The guide discusses the basic building blocks of poetry, such as rhyme, rhythm, meter, and form. Each of the 10 chapters is a progressive, step-by-step presentation with illustrative examples. The guide does not deal with verseforms exhaustively, but it does introduce the concept and discuss verseforms that poets writing in English have most often used. The goal of the guide is to introduce traditional English-language prosodic practice and then to progress to fairly advanced levels of competence in it. The selected bibliography which concludes the guide offers readers/students a chance to carry their investigation of the subject farther. (Nka)

Aaron Rose : photographs by Aaron Rose( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aaron Rose has created one of the most remarkable bodies of work of any photographer living today, and for most of his career he did this in isolation from both the art world and the world of commercial photography, in a single-minded private quest for visual enlightenment. He was virtually unknown to the photography world until five of his prints were exhibited at the Whitney Biennial in 1997, when he was in his late fifties." "Rose's images - completely original visions of trees and plants; sun, stars, and clouds; shells; the New York skyline - are miracles of light and chemistry. A magician who builds his own cameras and mixes complex developing emulsions incorporating exotic metals, Rose has spent virtually every working day for thirty years taking and printing more than 25,000 photographs, most of them superb prints from negatives that he printed once or twice and then put away forever. This book offers the first-ever presentation of Rose's work, accompanied by an essay by distinguished poet Alfred Corn and a vivid conversation between the two men, in which Rose speaks directly about photography, science, art, and commitment."--Jacket

Atlas : selected essays, 1989-2007 by Alfred Corn( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The title of the collection, Atlas, is apt in the sense of travel, both physical and abstract. Alfred Corn's essays range from a reminiscence of a journey to Elizabeth Bishop's birthplace; to his exchange as a college student of letters with Flannery O'Connor, in which the renowned author writes to Corn about the nature of faith; to his reassessment of Auden's Christmas Oratorio; to his lively look at the Canterbury Tales; to Corn's retrospective consideration of Wordsworth. While many such essay collections limit themselves to the modern and contemporary periods, Corn's enthusiasm for Chaucer and Keats is as fresh and inquisitive as that which he holds for Bishop, Thom Gunn, or Derek Mahon."--Jacket
