Don Paterson is not only one of our great poets, but also an esteemed authority on the art of poetry. The Poem is a treatise on the art of poetry in three sections - one on lyric, the music of poetic speech; one on sign, and how poetry makes its unique kind of sense; and one on metre, the rhythm of the poetic line.

Review:

'Don Paterson is one of the most talented poets working today; he is also an editor of poetry, a reader, someone intrigued by linguistics and philosophy and neurology, and is therefore the perfect polymath to write a book on how we read poetry ... ornery, profound, engaging, infuriating.' (Stuart Kelly The Scotsman)

'By the end of The Poem, I found myself reading lines of poetry over and over, exploring with a new intensity their sense and sound, right down to the most seemingly inconsequential grammar mark or phoneme. That is a sign of a good teacher: someone who can help others improve their own understanding of the world.' (Nick Major The Herald)

A tremendous achievement. (William Wooten TLS)

Book Description:

Illuminating and authoritative treatise on 'how a poem works', from the multi-award-winning poet, editor and professor of poetry.
