I bought this after taking Theory and Practice of Poetry, and the two classes intersected really well. If you've been introduced as poetry purely as an intellectual exercise, you're missing out. Pinsky explores the importance of the oral nature of poetry in a way that can help you write poems and analyze them. Recommended for anybody who wants to develop as a poet or who wants to teach poetry.
