Writing a Poem.
Trefethen, Florence
Designed to help the beginning or experienced poet, this book describes the progressive stages and possible difficulties in writing poetry--planning, the actual work with language and form, appraisal, and revision. "Journal Projects," or assignments, presenting increasingly difficult material are appended to each section of the book to encourage practice with the elements of poetic craftsmanship. Also included are works by well-known poets that illustrate the goal of most poems--making the link between the shaping imagination of the poet and the receptive consciousness of the reader. A glossary of poetic terms is provided. (Editor/JMC)
