From the Jacket

This eagerly awaited Companion features over 40 contributions from leading academicsaround the world, and offers critical overviews of numerous poetic genres. Covering a  r ange of  c ultural traditions from Britain, Ireland, North America, Japan and the Caribbean,amongst others, this valuable collection considers ancient genres such as the elegy, the ode, the ghazal and the ballad, before moving on to  Medieval and Renaissance genres  originally invented or codified by the Troubadours or poets who followed in their wake. The book also   approaches genres driven by theme, such as the calypso and found poetry. Each chapter begins by defining the genre in its initial stages, charting historical developments and finally assessing its latest mutations, be they structural, thematic, parodic, assimilative or subversive.
