Sometimes it seems like there are as many definitions of poetry as there are poems. Coleridge defined poetry as “the best words in the best order.” St. Augustine called it “the Devil’s wine.” For Shelley, poetry was “the record of the best and happiest moments of the happiest and best minds.” But no matter how you define it

I am probably a little bit less of a dummie than this book is intended for. I was actually looking for something that in retrospect is pretty technical. I looking for something that would list and exmaine a whole bunch of poetry form likes Hikus and so others. That is not what I got but what I got covered quite a bit of things that I pretty much already knew but also a lot other stuff as well as really useful reflections on how to approach poetry. I consider it a good buy even if it was not what I looking for. I am not sure that what I want even exists.
