Fraga's message of "Sun, 02 May 2021 11:19:56 +0100") Hi Eric and all, Thank you for your comments. Eric S Fraga writes: > What is being proposed looks reasonable to me.

Indeed, optical centering is the correct typographic representation for poetry and poetry quotes. There would only be a couple exceptions: a) Certain types of avant-garde poetry (whose representation on paper is usually freer) and b) those poems whose verses spill over the margins and span several lines (in such case, the attribute :versewidth would have to take the value \textwidth, and then the verse package takes care of adjusting the overflowing part of the verses). Here I have uploaded two very illustrative examples of optical centering, two pages from a Tolkien book (/The Monsters and the Critics and Other Essays/) and another page from a book that I recently typesetted (here also includes verse numbering): https://imgur.com/a/cGi4CpD > Is the verse package loaded automatically already?

For now, you need to load the verse package or add it to org-latex-packages-alist... Best regards, Juan Manuel
