It is a linguistically based study of rythmic structures, and of the nature of rhythm, in the free verse of T. Eliot, Robert Lowell, and James Wright.
It was written for accessibility to readers who, although not necessarily specialists in linguistic poetics, have some knowledge of language and poetry. The book begins with an examination of rhythm in language as a whole, and of rhythm as a basic mental structure. This discussion touches on concepts from metrical phonology, acoustic phonetics, Russian Formalist and New Critical ideas of rhythm and meter, and music theory.

A good overview of metre, rhythm, and verse form that relies upon analysis of several examples. Hobsbaum describes specific verse forms but also discusses their dynamics, the way they emerge in response to previous forms, and how they change over time.
