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.
