From the Back Cover:

Stephen Minot’s THREE GENRES provides creative writers with a

solid foundation to understand and study fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and

drama. Full of expert advice and complete works as examples, this classic

book is the ultimate guide for creative writers at all levels. Each section is

comprehensive, and draws on Professor Minot’s many years of experience

as a teacher and professional writer to supply creative writers with the skills

necessary to produce their own works. Professor Minot eagerly encourages

creative writers to write on their own because “there is no better way to

increase your understanding of poetry, literary prose, or drama than to

write them.”
