Overview

The New Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics is a comprehensive reference work dealing with all aspects of its subject: history, types, movements, prosody, and critical terminology. Prepared by recognized authorities, its articles treat their topics in sufficient depth and with enough lucidity to satisfy the scholar and the general reader alike. Entries vary in length from relatively brief notices to substantial articles of about 20,000 words.

The Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics, published in 1965, established itself as a standard work in the field. Among the 215 contributors were Northrop Frye writing on allegory, Murray Krieger on belief in poetry, Philip Wheelwright on myth, John Hollander on music, and William Carlos Williams on free verse. In 1974, the Enlarged Edition increased the entries with dozens of new subjects, including rock lyric, computer poetry, and black poetry, to name just a few.

The New Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics accounts for the extraordinary change and explosion of knowledge within literary and cultural studies since the 1970s. This edition, completely revised, preserves what was most valuable from previous editions, while subjecting each existing entry to revision. Over 90 percent of the entries have been extensively revised and most major ones entirely rewritten. Completely new entries number 162, including those by new contributors Camille Paglia, Barbara Herrnstein Smith, Elaine Showalter, Houston Baker, Andrew Ross, and many more. New entries include those on cultural criticism, discourse, feminist poetics, and Chicano poetry.

Improvements cover several areas: All the recent developments in theory that bear on poetry are included; bibliographies of secondary sources are extended; cross-references among entries and through blind entries have been expanded for greater ease of use; and coverage of emergent and non-Western poetries is dramatically increased. Indeed, a hallmark of the encyclopedia is its world-wide orientation on the poetry of national and cultural groups.

Editorial Reviews

Classical Journal

A reference work of distinction which all who work in the field of literary studies will find extremely useful if not, indeed, indispensable.

Writer's Digest
I consider this volume nearly as essential for any working poet as a good dictionary.
Books Abroad

No handier one-volume compendium is now available to provide so much useful, authoritative material on the history, theory, and craft of imaginative writing.

The Modern Language Journal

An extraordinarily helpful volume that will save untold hours of reference time for the student, the general reader, and the literary scholar.

The Times Literary Supplement

A work of scholarship, much humour and literary value.

Library Journal
Larger than both the last edition (1965) and the ``enlarged'' edition that was published in 1974, this new edition of the indispensable Princeton Encyclopedia assesses 106 national poetries, with coverage of ``every significant poetry tradition in the world.'' Gone are such entries as ``Negro poetry. American''; ``Afro-American poetry'' takes its place. Though many entries such as ``sonnet'' are virtually unchanged from the earlier edition, others, such as ``Feminist poetics,'' are brand-new. Some entries, e.g., ``cliche'' and ``compensation,'' have been deleted. This is an essential purchase for any library supporting the study of poetry; the only problem is that the print is tiny and hard to read.-- Peter Dollard, Alma Coll. Lib., Mich.
