Poetry Handbook
By

Rating
From the nuts and bolts of craft to the sources of inspiration, this book is for anyone who wants to write poetry - and do it well. Brief essays on the elements of poetry, technique, and suggested subjects for writing are each followed by distinctive writing exercises. ("Compare an actual family photograph with one that was never taken, but might have been.") The ups and downs of the writing life - including self-doubt and writer's block - are here, along with tips about getting published and writing in the electronic age. On your own, this book can be your "teacher, " while groups, in or out of the classroom, can profit from sharing weekly assignments.

Reviews

"This feels like the book we've been waiting for: rigorous, generous, in love with the art of poetry, aware of the inner architecture of poems-and maybe it couldn't have been written by anyone but Kim Addonizio and Dorianne Laux, two passionate poets." -- Marie Howe "An intelligent, lucid conversation-between the authors and between them and us. I have been with them all-there is no better companion!" -- Gerald Stern "Thoughtful, generous, and accurate to both deeper truths and the craftwork it takes to hold them ... a superb guide for the working poet." -- Jane Hirshfield
