Kingsley Amis's The New Oxford Book of English Light Verse is the best poetry collection of its sort that I know: a judiciously selected harvest of light verse, specifically English in origin, including both old favorites and generally undiscovered gems, with an introduction /5(3).

Writing light verse [Richard Willard Armour] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.5/5(1). various aspects of writing light verse, either for fun or for publication, are discussed in this book--(1) the nature and appeal of light verse and its many varieties, (2) subjects which lend themselves best to the light-verse treatment, (3) the application of what one has learned from reading, thinking, and closely observing human foibles, (4) ways to begin the flow of ideas, (5) metrical.

Verse novels are not watered-down versions of each genre shoved together into one book. The verse novel must, in fact, do double-duty, having all the elements of of both genres.

This means a verse novel must have the music and imagery that we find in poetry and at the same time character development and story structure of a novel. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Armour, Richard, Writing light verse.

Writing light verse by Richard Willard Armour,The Writer, inc. edition, in English - Author: Lucille G. Shandloff, Richard Armour. Light verse aims primarily to entertain, and needs to be written in an everyday conversational style. Rhyme is usually expected, and certainly some deftness, polish and wit.

The starting point is usually a rhyming couplet or stanza that comes in the midst of thinking about something else, in. Light verse proliferated in the later 19th century with the rise of humorous periodicals.

Among the best-known light works of the period are the limericks of Edward Lear’s Book of Nonsense (), W.S. Gilbert’s Bab Ballads (), and the inspired nonsense of Lewis Carroll’s Hunting of the Snark ().

As with any piece of writing, there are joys and challenges in drafting a verse novel. I don’t first start with prose and then somehow later convert my work, but enter directly into poetry. From the beginning the writing is distilled and the process, for me, sometimes painfully slow.

So it shall be on the day when you cross the Jordan to the land which the Lord your God gives you, that you shall set up for yourself large stones and coat them with lime and write on them all the words of this law, when you cross over, so that you may enter the land which the Lord your God gives you, a land flowing with milk and honey, as the Lord, the God of your fathers, promised you.

Phyllis McGinley (Ma – Febru ) was an American author of children's books and poetry. Her poetry was in the style of light verse, specializing in humor, satiric tone and the positive aspects of suburban won a Pulitzer prize in McGinley enjoyed a wide readership in her lifetime, publishing her work in newspapers and women's magazines such as the Ladies.

The time of writing therefore will have to be set shortly after this incident and in Jeremiah's last years of life.

Purpose of Writing. In most of the modern Bible editions the Lamentations follow upon the book of Jeremiah. In the Hebrew Bible however they are set in the. Melissa Balmain, Editor Melissa teaches humor writing, poetry writing, and journalism at the University of Rochester.

Though she has received the Able Muse Book Award and twice been a finalist for the Howard Nemerov Sonnet Award, some of her favorite prizes are Abe Lincoln bobbleheads, salt and pepper shakers that look like outhouses, and other classy items she has won in light-verse contests.

Author and Time of Writing. No author's name is mentioned in the book of Ecclesiastes. Already old Jewish tradition says that King Solomon is the author of this book of the Bible.

And yet Solomon's authorship has many a times been doubted at for two reasons. Firstly for language reasons and secondly because the name Jehovah does not appear in. The ballad meter is easy to write, and is covered elsewhere.

Below are the phases of story writing, with examples and time spent: the poem completed to date is here. Phase One: Scraps of Verse. We dip into a book of quotations and mull over what appeals, closing the book to jot down lines as they come.

Cordelia Jensen graduated with a MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts in Cordelia has three verse novels: Skyscraping (Philomel/Penguin) The Way the Light Bends (Philomel/Penguin) and Every Shiny Thing (Amulet/Abrams), which she co-authored with VCFA classmate Laurie Morrison.

To craft some types of light verse, then, sometimes takes more effort than the other writing I'm avoiding. But at the same time, there are some forms of light verse which are ideal for putting yourself through the paces, like a musician practicing scales; you must learn the forms, the way a musician learns the notes of the scale, but after that.

Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats ("Old Possum" was Ezra Pound's nickname for him) was Tom's shot at light verse. After Eliot's death, the book was adapted as the basis of the musical Cats by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Keillor's poem, "Cicadas," is a good modern example.

All this however had not yet taken place when the book of Habakkuk was written. Although we have no dates mentioned the time of writing could be pretty fixed between the time of Nineveh's destruction and the first attack on Judah, which would be between and BC.

Habakkuk therefore was a contemporary of Jeremiah.It is clear throughout the book that Barrie Gauthier enjoys humorous light verse writing. All in all, he has written a book particularly for people who share his understanding of and fixation on the English language.
