WHEN THE TEACHER SAYS, "WRITE A POEM"--A BOOK FOR JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS.
APPLEGATE, MAUREE
ADDRESSED TO THE JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT FACED WITH A POETRY-WRITING ASSIGNMENT, THIS BOOK PRESENTS THE ARGUMENT THAT "POETRY IS FOR YOU." INDIVIDUAL CHAPTERS TREAT (1) THE EXPRESSION OF SENSORY IMPRESSIONS, (2) RHYTHM, (3) THE PICTORIAL NATURE OF POETRY, (4) HUMOROUS POETRY, (5) REVISION, AND (6) VARIOUS DEFINITIONS OF POETRY. A "KINDLE KIT" OF SUGGESTIONS, EXERCISES, AND SAMPLE REVISIONS CONCLUDES MOST CHAPTERS. NUMEROUS POEMS BY ADOLESCENTS AND SEVERAL BY THE AUTHOR ARE UTILIZED THROUGHOUT THE BOOK AS ILLUSTRATIONS, AS MODELS, AND AS THE BASES FOR EXERCISES. (THIS BOOK IS PUBLISHED BY HARPER AND ROW, INC., NEW YORK, $1.60.) (RD)
