Q. What happens with books whose text consists of a poem?

Answer

If a story for young people is in verse the heading Stories in rhyme is added as the first subject heading and it is classed in PZ8.3.  True poetry is not classed in PZ, but rather in PR, PS, or another “adult” literature class.  Novels in verse for older readers are classed in PZ7.5.  These are often in free verse.
