9781934389461: Poetry For Beginners

Poetry is one of those subjects almost impossible to define as it can be so many things at once. It can be: kids whispering limericks on the playground; secret languages used by revolutionaries and spies; or the written strength of oppressed people. Poetry is how millions of people across time have used language to try to better understand love, hate, war, religion, oppression, joy, sorrow, sex, and death.

Poetry is one of the oldest forms of writing in the world, yet also constantly evolving. Despite its complexities, poetry is probably the way most people learned how to read. Poetry For Beginners is a fun, lively and accessible guide, and expands one’s understanding and knowledge of poetry through the ages.

From ancient Greece to the present, Poetry For Beginners traces the wonders of the written word and shows how it is relevant in daily life.

From the Author:

Readers are introduced to the movers and shakers in poetry through the ages, the elements of poetic style, the form and function of poetry, as well as poetry in motion--how to read and write a poem. More than 100 poets to know and poems to ponder are included from William Blake, Gwendolyn Brooks, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, and Rudyard Kipling to Edgar Allen Poe, William Shakespeare, Dylan Thomas, and Walt Whitman. Readers will encounter poetry from the classics and romantics, the modernists, beat and confession poets as well as famous sonnets, odes, sestinas and other poetic forms. Essential to understanding poetry is to grasp how poets utilize meter, rhythm and rhyme, metaphors and similes, imagery, symbols, and themes to capture our imagination and awaken our sensibilities. The book's main goal is to share the joy in poetry and to make learning about poetry as meaningful and memorable as possible. Also included is a summary timeline of the poets and resources for further reading. Whether you are new to poetry or an avid fan, this book will expand your knowledge as it unintimidates and uncomplicates the great thinkers. 
"Be patient towards all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves... like books that are written in a foreign language. Do not seek the answers, which cannot be given to you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now... Resolve to be always beginning--to be a beginner."--Rainer Maria Rilke
