    1. I am a poet. I am even a published poet. In multiple genres, by multiple publishers. But, when faced with a heavy-handed edit of a poem and wanting to react appropriately to it, I realized that I have been, up to now, a mostly instinctive poet. I have no formal training, and if I've had any success at this it was as much due to the luck of being a natural writer as knowing what the hell I was doing. I needed to add some intent. So I sought out some books on and to my surprise, a large number of [...]

    2. This book, with a dull cover and a dull title, looks completely generic, but I did find it useful. Rather than going through all the usual stuff about meter, form, rhyme schemes, etc it assumes (for simplicity) that we're just talking about free verse and then just focuses on language. Each chapter is very short, really just introducing a topic, but giving you food for thought and some quick examples. A couple of "demo" poem fragments are used throughout and rewritten in dozens of ways to illust [...]

    3. It's a book much about the writing sense of poetry as it gives overviews of the tools and techniques poets of various movements and times have used. The techniques are the stylized uses of poetry fusing trends with innovations that are designed to a particular form. The tools really stress more or less how to avoid clichés and over usages that can obstruct the meanings to poem writing.

    4. Despite some errors in this book (Robert Frost's poem is "Mending Wall" not "Wall Mending"), it's a terrific primer for young poets--inexpensive, clear, simple, brief. Thoroughly NOT overwhelming, I'm willing to give it a shot in my Intro Poetry Workshop.

    5. I'm using this for a group I lead. Fabulous. It centers around becoming aware of one's own poetics and how the poetics of a writer influences (or should influence) editing. I'm fascinated how poetics (often unaware) influences reading (and judging).
