Spirit of the English Language: A Practical Guide for Poets, Teachers and Students
John Wulsin Jr
John Wulsin approaches the English language not as a conventional linguist, but as a poet interested in the spirit and evolution of our language. To show ``how sound works in English and American poetry`` the author traces the many changes, both subtle and radical, in how English has sounded over the past thirteen centuries, while also showing how those changes are related to the evolution of human consciousness in Western, English-speaking peoples.
