This charming novel, which is about a mediocre intellectual in crisis and written in a Bellovian vein, really knows its poetry. Baker's Paul Chowder is obsessed with rhyme, but cannot produce any: he's a fabulous joke leveled at the legions of program-era poets who have confused versifying with artful prose arrangement.
