...Bogen's cheerful and relentlessly encouraging little book is aimed at the do-it-yourselfer, and explains how poetry works from the inside. It teems with helpful hints like, "Don't say, My poem is too plain, I have to put some metaphors into it." Perhaps with this mechanic's handbook we could better understand the lofty heights of verse. -- Frederica Mathewes-Green, personal website
A very thin, unpretentious book that gives you tools, practice, and examples in the craft of poetry without getting extremely analytical...Practical exercises are dotted liberally throughout the book. No theory is introduced without lots and lots of hands-on application...It makes a valuable starter book, a valuable reference book (for forms, meter, etc.), and a valuable exercise book for ongoing poetry calisthenics. -- Anitra Dancing, Speakeasy website
