About this item

With its plain language, conversational tone, and sense of humor, this textbook can serve as a primer, anthology, and encyclopedia for students and for aspiring poets who are not enrolled in a class. Section 1 offers an introduction to understanding poems by focusing on the experience a poem creates, rather than interpretation. Section 2, the core of the book, provides alphabetical entries on 38 elements of poetry. Section 3 gives advice on revision and on how students can make the most of their workshop experience. Section 4 provides an anthology of examples of contemporary poetic modes. The example poems, written by contemporary writers in English across cultures and ethnic groups, are grouped in sections according to 20 modes or rhetorical stances. Each section opens with a brief summary of the mode, then gives several examples, and contains a brief interview with one of the writers of the examples. An appendix presents 75 brief poetry writing prompts. The book concludes with a list of recommended books on writing poetry. Annotation ©2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
