A comprehensive dictionary of poetry terminology that is excellent for teaching and learning various elements of poetry. This glossary of all poetry terms is a valuable resource for poets and educators.
PoetrySoup makes a distinction between poetry terms and forms of poetry. Forms of poetry adhere to a certain pattern, scheme, or meter, etc. However, our poetry terms are words or terminology that are closely associated with poetry while not a form of poetry. We have seperated poetry forms from these definitions.
