Poetry: An Introduction Through Writing.
Turco, Lewis
The intention of this book is to introduce college students to the genre of poetry from the writer's point of view by presenting them with the same problems that aspiring poets encounter as they develop into accomplished poets. The book proceeds from some general observations to simple exercises, and then to more complex exercises, with many examples of English and American poetry. Twenty-four chapters cover such topics as defining the poet, prosodics, non-metrical prosodies, spatials and grammatics, word-count and parenthetics, syllabic prosodies, accentual prosodies, sonics, tropes, imagery, schemas, poetic voice, narratives, dramatics, lyrics, didactics, occasionals, confessionals, and satirics.
