Meter Matters · Verse Cultures of the Long Nineteenth Century
Edited by Jason David Hall

Across the nineteenth century, meter mattered—in more ways and to more people than we might well appreciate today. For the period’s poets, metrical matters were a source of inspiration and often vehement debate. And the many readers, teachers, and pupils encountered meter and related topics in both institutional and popular forms.

“Hall’s edited collection is…alive to the latest scholarship, and full of excitingly experimental research.”
