Now I understand poetry,
By A Customer
This review is from: How Poetry Works (Paperback)
I have always found poetry difficult going - I've never really understood it. This book was a revelation. Focussing on the sounds of poetry, the book explains in depth how metre, rhyme, and sounds combine to make poems work. It also contains an excellent anthology. Now I know what iambic pentameter means.
