Phil Roberts

How Poetry Works
  • How Poetry Works

  • In this refreshing and inspiring book, Phil Roberts asserts that poetry, like music, is based on sound and so close attention should be paid to its rhythms and metrical patterns. He illustrates his points with lively examples ranging from nursery rhymes and limericks to recent experimental forms as well as familiar pieces from over the centuries. The book concludes with a Millennium Anthology, a salute to the poetry of the past thousand years, including pieces from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, as well as Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA.

Phil Roberts was born in Canada and educated there and in England. Apart from working as a writer, with over ten published books, he is also an active musician. He is an Associate of the Australian Conservatory of Music and also of the Royal Canadian College of Organists.
