The Art of Syntax: Rhythm of Thought, Rhythm of Song

Ellen Bryant Voight

With intelligence and precision, Ellen Bryant Voigt parses out the deft and alluring shape of poetic language in The Art of Syntax. Through brilliant readings of poems by Bishop, Frost, Kunitz, Lawrence and others, Voigt examines the signature musical scoring writers deploy to orchestrate meaning. ‘This structure - this architecture - is the essential drama of the poem’s composition,’ she argues. The Art of Syntax is an indispensable book on the writer’s craft by one of America’s best and most influential poets and teachers.
