This anthology offers strategies and prompts for using the single sentence as a principle of poetic structure, a rhetorical tool, and a stimulus. The book includes an extraordinary array of one-sentence poems from a wide range of historical periods, poetic perspectives, and lengths—from epigrams and aphorisms to sonnets, lyrics, and narratives that range over several pages. More than 80 poets are represented, from Shakespeare to Kay Ryan.
