    1. The first few chapters were a bit hokey and old-fashioned but once she started talking about traditional verse forms, rhyme etc, I found this so enlightening, especially in revealing how the skill of Shakespeare (and other greats) is in avoiding strict adherence to rules of, say iambic pentameter. And I also liked the way she discussed and explained Free verse.

    2. There is a lot of good information in this book. There are also some good exercises which got my students writing. The one downside I found was in the forms which it mentioned on the cover. There were not as many as I had hoped.

    3. This book is better read in a group dynamic (classroom, workshop, whatever) than used alone. Too many of the exercises are designed with feedback in mindtia/2008/11/how

    4. Bogen provides a set of tools for beginner poets in her book. Great for helping new poets to start their journey!--Respectfully,Stuart Moss

    5. This book provides the basics of writing poetry. It doesn't go into depth, but it is a good overview.

    6. I have read and re-read this book three times. I now use it as a reference book, researching techniques and gathering inspiration for my writing. And excellent book.
