This abridgement of the author's authoritative Greek Metre provides readers with a down-to-earth, digestible introduction to the subject. West has simplified his discussion of the basics and has increased the number of examples illustrating the more common metres. Altering the format slightly, West has gathered the most common metres in their own chapter, but otherwise the book retains the broadly chronological and historical approach of the original work. Wide-ranging and accessible, Introduction to Greek Metre offers a very thorough grounding in the subject.
