If you have ever felt mystified by, or unable to enjoy the significance of poetry, this book will lead you step by step to understanding and love of this genre of literature, guided by a gifted poet and teacher. The Art of Poetry is an excellent middle school or high school curriculum; it will teach the practice of reading a poem slowly and closely, introduce students to the elements of poetry (such as imagery and metaphor) and the many forms that a poem can takefrom sonnet to open verse. In the belief that practice is the best way to learn, this book is rich with explications, exercises, and activities in each chapter. A biography of each poet is also included and there are audio files for most of the poems in the book. This is a course that focuses on becoming an accomplished close-reader and, out of that delight, responding as a writer. Writing, we believe, is the highest form of reading. Whether your student is interested in writing, wants to understand the way poems are made, or simply wants to become more attuned to language and metaphor, this is an ideal resource-a course in a box for middle school or high school students.
