Note
  • "I owe a great debt to Ian Chilvers, who initially suggested this new edition and who has been a constant support. He has provided detailed and sometimes astringent comments on my efforts, giving me the benefit of his high professional standards and years of experience. Nonetheless, I take final responsibility: the extra weight given to more experimental and avant-garde forms and the more academic tone of certain entries are entirely my decisions."--Introduction
