5.0 out of 5 stars The best poetry handbook on the market, 10 Jun 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Poet's Handbook (Paperback)
Like the other reviewer, I've been a poet for over twenty years, and been teaching poetry (at all levels, including undergraduate and postgraduate) for 12. This is the best book about writing poetry that exists, and I've probably read most of them. This is the book I recommend to all my students and is on my primary reading list. I confess I was gutted when it was temporarily out of print - because none of the other handbooks or guides for aspiring poets comes close, when compared with Jerome, to explaining the nuts and bolts of poetry. Jerome explains everything you need to know about poetical composition (particularly the technical parts) in clear, readable prose, giving fantastic examples which I have often used myself while teaching. I'm thrilled this book is back in print and widely available (very cheaply) on Amazon Marketplace.
