Poetry is an art form that is a universal human endeavor. It is a deep communication of the world around us, shared from one person to another by carefully crafted language. If you have ever felt mystified by or unable to enjoy the significance of poetry, this text, written by a poet, will lead you step by step to an understanding and love of this branch of literature. The Art of Poetry is an excellent middle- or high-school curriculum; it will teach the practice of reading a poem slowly and carefully and introduce students to the elements of poetry, such as imagery and metaphor, and the many forms that can make a poem, from an ode to open verse. In the belief that practice is the best way to learn, this book is rich with poems from many sources, along with explications, exercises, and activities. A biography of each poet is also included.
