Product Description

"Concise, learned, revisionary... should enrich the passionate conversation about poetic forms for years to come."― Edward Hirsch, author of How to Read a Poem and Fall in Love with Poetry

Two of our foremost poets provide here a lucid, straightforward primer that "looks squarely at some of the headaches and mysteries of poetic form": a book for readers who have always felt that an understanding of form (sonnet, ballad, villanelle, sestina, among others) would enhance their appreciation of poetry. Tracing "the exuberant history of forms," they devote one chapter to each form, offering explanation, close reading, and a rich selection of examplars that amply demonstrate the power and possibility of that form.
