Poetics, Book 1

0 Reviews
This classic is the first book of a series of poetry booklets. In this cunning work I touch on all the different species of poetry; it covers anywhere from war anthems, song and rhyme to proverbs, short epics, comedy, and parables. This crafty piece of literature mixes powerful philosophy with the creativity of language arts. It is a must have for all those interested in poetry and literature.
