Edward Hirsch is an award-winning poet with eight collections to his credit, but his advocacy of the genre extends beyond his own works. In books like How to Read a Poem and Fall in Love with Poetry and Poet's Choice, he educated readers about verse even as he encouraged them to sample the verse of unfamiliar writers. Far more comprehensive than other poetry primer, this 736-page guide describes poetic forms, rhetorical forms and devices; but also poetry movements, groups, isms, folklore, and aesthetics. Destined to become the standard.
