This renowned guide to writing poetry offers comprehensive coverage of the creative process and the technical aspects of writing poetry.
For poets/teachers who embrace a writing text as a companion to the larger conversation that happens in the classroom, nothing measures up to Writing Poems: 1) to introduce to the beginning student poetry's traditions, discipline and (hard-won) rewards, and 2) to guide more experienced poets through the deep oceans of making and remaking poems. Filled with practical advice, this text enlivens students' understanding of poetry, illustrates poetic principles, and serves as a reliable handbook. It also includes an anthology of classic and contemporary poems, that can be used as a springboard for classroom discussion and student writing. This market-leading, student-friendly text can be used at either the undergraduate or graduate level.
