This is a wide ranging collection of poetry exercises written by poets who also teach. This guide to writing poetry combines essays by practicing poets and poetry teachers with exercises covering inspiration, the senses, voice, structure, and revision. The textbook concludes with two or three essays about revision that every poet needs to read. Beginning poets especially can benefit the wisdom herein. This textbook still gave me new ideas on how to write different varieties of poems. It is very useful, and I enjoy it! Recommended.
