Spanish to English translations [PRO] Art/Literary - Poetry & Literature
Spanish term or phrase:la sustentación y el verso
Libro que nos ayuda a desarrollar una opinión, en forma didáctica e ilustrativa, sobre los discursos políticos, sociales, comerciales o artísticos con propiedad, sobre la base de una reflexión responsable, el ordenamiento de ideas, la elocuente composición de palabras y las estrategias más efectivas para convencer a lectores y espectadores.
Explanation: Based on the (badly written) explanation of the book provided in Sarah's link.
Apparently they will analyse both argumentative and artistic speeches. They include music in the latter but I do not know what they mean.

Explanation: How about this for a title? Ideally it should have a certain ring to it, and English is fond of alliteration. There are possible variants; for example:
Persuasion and Poetry
(From) the Persuasive to the Poetic
I do think "verso" should be reflected in whatever English title is chosen. In your review they refer to "artistic" language; in the publisher's blurb Sarah has found they specify "discursos artísticos, como la música y la poesía". Maybe they mean literally music, but I think it's more likely they're referring to musical texts: song lyrics. Be that as it may, "poetry" in English can be literal or it can mean "artistic" (literary) language in more general terms.
As for "persuasion", I think this term could cover the other side of the book's context: "discursos políticos, sociales, comerciales". In the publisher's text, again, they speak of "argumentar sobre temas de actualidad" and again mention "commercial" discourse. So I think argument and marketing put us in the area of persuasion.
A title doesn't have to be a precise summary of the content; it just needs to suggest reasonably accurately what the book's about.
