The Art of Poetry
The Art of Poetry


From the introduction:

There is a bright future for poetry, the art of formulating with brevity and wit. This essay is dedicated to the generation of my grandchildren and to all who strive for better verbal expression or read poetry for sheer enjoyment. The author’s concern is craftsmanship and not ideology. The examples I have selected come from manifold sources, both contemporary and traditional. They exclude experimental or unstructured poetry, for which I prefer to let others speak. What I attempt to offer may add spice to the classical rules, with which the reader is presumably acquainted.
