The philosophy behind "Writing Poems "is that the traditions and trends of poetry in English are grand and varied enough to give poets what they need to know about poems; in other words, poems teach poets how to write. So the book continues to focus on how poems work and how to use those workings in making one' s own poems. The gold standard of poetry writing books, Writing Poems 7/e is a comprehensive, easy-to-use guide that will help aspiring poets to create meaningful works. STARTING OUT: An Introduction; VERSE; MAKING THE LINE; THE SOUND AND LOOK OF SENSE; SUBJECT MATTER; METAPHOR; TALE, TELLER, TONE; THE MYSTERIES OF LANGUAGE; FINDING THE POEM; DEVISING AND REVISING; BECOMING A POET Anyone who wants to become a poet.
