The teachers & writers handbook of poetic forms
For the Handbook, 19 teaching poets have written 76 entries on traditional and modern poetic forms. The Handbook succinctly defines the forms, summarizes their histories, quotes good examples (ancient and modern, by adult and young writers), and offers professional tricks of the trade on how to use each form.
New to this edition of the Handbook are: two new entries for poetic forms, a new preface, an updated bibliography, and a resource list of current audiocassettes, videocassettes, CD-ROMs, and Web sites. Padgett has revised the text throughout.
