9780195337136: Rhyme's Challenge: Hip Hop, Poetry, and Contemporary Rhyming Culture

Rhyme's Challenge offers a concise, pithy primer to hip-hop poetics while presenting a spirited defense of rhyme in contemporary American poetry. David Caplan's stylish study examines hip-hop's central but supposedly outmoded verbal technique: rhyme. At a time when print-based poets generally dismiss formal rhyme as old-fashioned and bookish, hip-hop artists deftly deploy it as a way to capture the contemporary moment. Rhyme accommodates and colorfully chronicles the most conspicuous conditions and symbols of contemporary society: its products, technologies, and personalities. Ranging from Shakespeare and Wordsworth to Eminem and Jay-Z, David Caplan's study demonstrates the continuing relevance of rhyme to poetry -- and everyday life.

About the Author:


David Caplan is Charles M. Weis Chair in English and Associate Director of Creative Writing at Ohio Wesleyan University. His previous books include Questions of Possibility: Contemporary Poetry and Poetic Form and the poetry collection In the World He Created According to His Will.

Review:


"A refreshingly serious and stimulating consideration of the formal tendencies of hip hop, Caplan's study infuses previous readings of hip hop's social concerns and historical situations with an exacting look at the pleasures and ramifications of rhyme."
--Yasmine Shamma, Poetry Magazine (Poetryfoundation.org)


"Ultimately, this is a hopeful book, one that sees flux as a positive and that sees analysis as an aid to enjoying art in all its facets and embodiments, from the commercial to the high brow...the increasing influence of hip hop will continue to challenge contemporary poets to see rhyme not as a stale technique but as an energizing one."
--Charlotte Pense, The Rumpus


"In Rhyme's Challenge David Caplan makes the case that rhymes live all around us and express themselves most evocatively in hip hop. He draws rich connections across music, culture, law, politics, science, and beyond. This is a rare kind of book: rooted but daring, learned but hip. It bears out Chuck D's claim that 'what counts is that the rhyme's / Designed to fill your mind.' Caplan cares deeply about rhyme; after reading this book, so will you." --Adam Bradley, author of Book of Rhymes: The Poetics of Hip Hop


"If you want to see the very traditional techniques of literary analysis prove their worth once more, if you want to see what those techniques can do for, with, and about Big Daddy Kane and Missy Elliot, Jay-Z and Lupe Fiasco, there's no substitute for the close reading and closer listening Caplan provides; and if you want to see what rap's techniques (not just its subjects; its techniques) contribute to present-day page-based poetry, from Major Jackson to D. A. Powell, Caplan's work is surely a, if not the, place to go. You might even go from it back to the rappers themselves." --Stephen Burt, author of Close Calls with Nonsense


"Intriguing...Makes a strong case that there is more to hip-hop in terms of artistry than is often granted." --The American Conservative


"David Caplan's Rhyme's Challenge: Hip Hop, Poetry, and Contemporary Rhyming Culture is a much needed book because it examines the significance of rhymes in American hip hop across races and cultures. After a brief analysis of the significance of rhymes in contemporary American culture generally, Caplan provides a thorough study of the importance of poetry in African-American hip hop. His book is groundbreaking." -- Popular Music and Society


"[Caplan] identifies a striking truth, namely that hip-hop lyricists adore rhyme, whereas contemporary print-based poets largely avoid it. Using strong close readings and rich literary contextualization, he argues that rap artists leveraged a rapidly expanding English language to champion rhyming, a poetic technique that had fallen victim to changing creative tastes . . . Caplan's efforts herald important new options for analyzing rap." --Choice


"Organized through topics like insult and seduction, Rhyme's Challenge is mindful of subject matter but inclines toward an intensively close reading of other formal elements. [I]t is the precision and insight of Caplan's analyses that leave the strongest impression, along with his concluding argument that hip hop has already had an influence on a generation
of print-based poets of various races, which is likely to persist as this century continues." --American Literary History


"Finely articulated, Rhyme's Challenge demonstrates Caplan's creativity, command of language, and rich and varied use of sources...Caplan presents a thoughtful, intricate, and persuasive text that will serve as a catalyst for scholars willing to accept his challenge." --The Bulletin of the Society for American Music
