Journal Entry 1 by creativeMGE from Kensington, Maryland USA on Wednesday, November 19, 2008

From the back cover:
This anthology celebrates the renaissance of formal verse in contemporary America. As Richard Wilbur writes in his forward, more and more poets have begun to realize that rhyme and meter are "not ornament but emphasis, ligature, and significant sound." Strong Measures provides a showcase for the finest contemporary examples of nearly seventy-five traditional forms, ranging from ballads and sonnets to kyrielles and pantoums. The book also demonstrates how contemporary poets have experimented with the old forms to make them "new" and relevant to our times.
