This is the ideal introductory text for students and teachers discovering the art of poetry. As a 'grammar,' it teaches the fundamentals of poetry from scansion and rhyme to more advanced concepts like spatial poetry and synecdoche. Using the classical methodology of imitation (advocated by educators like Quintilian and Benjamin Franklin), this text makes students become active participants as they learn the craft of writing poems. It also offers practical tips and helps, including how to use a rhyming dictionary, how great writers use figures of speech effectively, and even when to break the rules of poetry. Its goal is to show students how to capably interact not just with poems, but with language in any situation. This Teacher's Edition contains a final exam, instructions on using the text and grading poetry, and ideas for additional assignments, as well as answers to the exercises found in the Student Edition.
