modern and post-modern. All critical and theoretical

readable and accessible style. We recommend 6000 to 12000

As a result of the current renaissance in literary prosody, a group
of scholars in a wide range of fields has recently banded together
to create an innovative web site called "Versification." Its purpose
is to encourage serious, multi-disciplinary and wide-ranging debate
on all aspects of literary prosody. The site will feature a refereed
journal, book reviews, running bibliographies, information on
developments in the field, links to other sites of interest and a
Colloquium for lively, informal discussions of all matters pertaining
to versification.

other arts (post-impressionism, decadence, favism, cubism, imagism,
vorticism, futurism, dadaism, surrealism, expressionism, etc.).
