A bibliographic introduction to Latin metrics, including general and theoretical discussions and discussion of specific verse patterns. Includes separate bibliography and web-based resources.

Edited by Kenneth Haynes, Brown University (Kenneth_Haynes@Brown.edu)

The bibliography offers a selection of works on several topics in Latin meter. More comprehensive bibliographies are listed at the end. The general principles behind this selection are to include, for the most part, works from the last fifty years only (that is, published after 1960); to list around a half-dozen items for each topic; to scant technical or highly specialized discussions on the one hand and more general literary-critical ones on the other; and, with a few exceptions, to avoid referring to books and commentaries on individual poets.
