Writing Poems book It's a wonderful reference.

The textbook was written by Robert Wallace and had an introduction by . I believe this book is a revision and probably an improvement over the book I read. I like the book because it's easy to read, has a sense of humor and it seems to me just plain worthwhile especially for beginning poets. It's a wonderful reference.

It is simply the best textbook I have ever found to demystify poetry and inspire would-be poets. Not only is the text clear, cogent and lively, but the examples of poetry used - from Sharon Olds' "Sex Without Love" and Norman Dubie's "A Blue Hog", to Yusef Komunyakaa's "Sunday Afternoons" and Richard Wilbur's "Love Calls Us to the Things of the World" (plus classics such as .

I purchased this book as part of a college course. However, it is a great resource for anyone who wants to learn more about poetry and how write it. Great for a beginner, but also a lot for a more seasoned writer. A bit pricey, but most educational texts are today. I highly recommend. I chose to keep it as part of my home library, but I feel it may easily be sold back to a textbook store or some online website.

I have taught this book in its various editions in the Writers' Program at UCLA for many years. It is simply the best textbook I have ever found to demystify poetry and inspire would-be poets. Not only is the text clear, cogent and lively, but the examples of poetry used -- from Sharon Olds' "Sex Without Love" and Norman Dubie's "A Blue Hog", to Yusef Komunyakaa's "Sunday Afternoons" and Richard Wilbur's "Love Calls Us to the Things of the World" (plus classics such as W.C. Williams' "The Red Wheelbarrow" and Robert Frost's "The Road Not Taken") -- are uniformly first rate. If you want to learn how to write poetry well and do not live near an urban writing center, you can do no better than to buy this book.

EXCELLENT!

This is great material. I just started on Part II in the book and my writing has improved quiet a bit and continues to improve with every chapter. However it is intended as a text book and includes some group activities, but most are individual.

This book arrived well ahead of schedule, and was clean and in good shape.
The book is well written and helpful with plenty of wonderful poems and examples. I would definitely recommend this to anyone needing to know more about writing poems.

Great advice for aspiring poets but I am biased since Bob Wallace was my college advisor.
Too expensive
