Overview

Poetry for Teachers, by Michael S. Ryan, is an eclectic mix of selected free-verse and lyric poetry revolving around, but not limited to, the teaching-learning experience. A deceptively simple read, Ryan incorporates the day-to-day experiences of students and teachers with larger thematic views of the human condition. Poems in the book utilize humor, love and relationships, moments of fun, beauty and fear in the real and imagined school and classroom settings, different subject areas, a wide variety of literary features, mythological and other literary/authorial references, as well as the experiences of the author. Poetry for Teachers is divided into 2 sections: 'Students' and 'Teachers'. A comment on society, humans' relationships with literature, time, love, gravity, self and others, Michael S. Ryan's Poetry for Teachers is a recommended experience for ages twelve through adult.
