“Magnificent . . . poems to inspire [with] brief and brilliant, offhand notes about how to read them.”—Alan Cheuse, NPR Quick, joyful, and playfully astringent, with surprising comparisons and examples, this collection takes an unconventional approach to the art of poetry. Instead of rules, theories, or recipes, Singing School emphasizes ways to learn from great work: studying magnificent, monumentally enduring poems and how they are made— in terms borrowed from the “singing school” of William Butler Yeats’s “Sailing to Byzantium.” Robert Pinsky’s headnotes for each of the 80 poems and his brief introductions to each section take a writer’s view of specific works: William Carlos Williams’s “Fine Work with Pitch and Copper” for intense verbal music; Emily Dickinson’s “Because I Could Not Stop for Death” for wild imagination in matter-of-fact language; Robert Southwell’s “The Burning Babe” for surrealist aplomb; Wallace Stevens’s “The House Was Quiet and the World Was Calm” for subtlety in meter. Included are poems by Aphra Behn, Allen Ginsberg, George Herbert, John Keats, Mina Loy, Thomas Nashe, and many other master poets. This anthology respects poetry’s mysteries in two senses of the word: techniques of craft and strokes of the inexplicable.

In her second collection of poetry, Learning to See in Three Dimensions, Pamela Spiro Wagner takes us deep into an exploration of the human condition by delving into the worlds of relationships, religion, nature, and mental health. In each poem--and through each intense piece of original artwork included in the book--we are led up to a line and dared to cross it into a new paradigm of understanding the world. In -Mosaic- we are challenged to understand -assembling beauty from broken things-; in -State Property- we are led to consider how with -one aching brick at a time, / some walls are built, others are torn down...-; in -Friday Night Vigil- we must reconcile -How lovely the world is, although it's dying.- Just as powerful and original as Wagner's insights is her description: -like the poplar / still spilling her yellow dress / to the insistent fingertips of fall- in -When I Lose You- and in -Afterwards, What the Mother Said, - in which Wagner writes of the mother of a jihadist martyr, -But had I known of his plans / I would have taken a blade, sliced open my heart and crammed him deep inside. // I would have seamed it tight to seal him in. / I would have never let him go.- In this rich, full collection, Wagner's poetry pulls us into new territory through her alternating playfulness, hope, and, especially in the superb section Poems In Which I Speak Frankly, courage, a courage from which we all have much to learn.

Abstract: Abstract Owing to the education reform of incorporating language arts into the New Senior Secondary curriculum, using poems in the English classroom is unavoidable. Globally, poetry has received recognition of its values and strengths in language learning but it is still uncommon to find teachers in Hong Kong using poems in English lessons. This maybe due to both teachers' and students' misconceptions in poetry learning. In order to investigate students' views on using poetry in the curriculum, this paper aims at studying their responses, preferences, understanding of poetry and creativity in writing poetry. In the study, three instruments, including a questionnaire, structured interviews and some students' work, are used to collect data. The findings show that students generally liked learning English through poems. They preferred to learn some easy, short and interesting poems. Although some poems with certain patterns are difficult for them, their work can show their understanding of the characteristics of the poems. Lastly, students also expressed that they liked to use their imagination, feelings and personal experiences in writing their poems. It is believed that using poetry in the classroom can facilitate students' learning and enhance language acquisition. It seems therefore that more research in exploring poetry learning in the English classroom is worth conducting.
