Do you love to read poetry but struggle to write your own? This book is your answer. I had to read this for a class and I am glad I did because Mary Oliver does a very good job teaching everything you need to know about poetry. She covers everything- from the sound and diction of a word, length and rhythm, the form (whether free verse or not), and imagery. She even discusses tools to help you when revising your work. Everything about poetry is in this book, definitely a must have for poets.
