Summary

''For a class, or to work up enthusiasm about writing - and not just poetry - one could hardly do better for young people than this fresh and inviting collection.'' - KIRKUS REVIEWS How do you write poetry? It's a question with as many answers as there are poets. Now, in this unprecedented volume, thirty-two internationally renowned poets provide words of wisdom and inspiring examples of their own work for new poets everywhere. Compiled by anthologist extraordinaire Paul B. Janeczko, a talented poet in his own right, this outstanding resource offers a fascinating spectrum of advice from those who know best - ranging from ''break a few rules'' to ''read Shakespeare's sonnets in the bathroom'' to ''revise each poem at least thirty-two times.'' Not surprisingly, the most frequently made suggestion from these seasoned poets is simply to ''read, read, read!'' This rich volume - an ideal resource for classroom teachers and a beautiful gift for budding writers of all ages - offers the perfect opportunity to do just that.
