Reading and writing poetry as a class assignment can be a rewarding experience—especially when it’s approached in a spirit of fun. This book explains how poets use words imaginatively in rhymed and metered verse as well as free verse. Poems can be humorous or serious, long or very short, joyful or sad—and this instructive, yet fun-to-read book points the way toward composing and reading poems of all kinds. It’s filled with examples from Homer through today. All titles in Barron’s Painless Series are written especially for classroom use for middle-school students.

An acute eye for detail, in both nature and humankind, gives these eighty plus works a richness and psychological depth that constantly reward the reader. This collection contains a variety of forms; free and blank verse, sonnets, quatrains, rhyming couplets and narrative, each chosen for being best suited to the subject. Drifters, gypsies, outsiders and the accidental visitors of the air lend an 'other-worldly' feeling to Francis McPake's collection which, while vivid and humorous, forms a sonorous anthem to the passing years of the twentieth century. A Selection of Poems by Francis McPake was published by Athena Press in 2003.

It is about the devastation the loss of love and divorce can effect, and then the miracle of finding one's true love afterwards. It is an unfolding of the quest to spiritually force the universe to deliver that love as with magic. It is a reflection in song of the wonder of loving and being loved in return. And finally it is about lessons learned and things discovered during the journey of life and love.

The Poetry of Saying presents the history and social development of alternative forms of British poetry, still little examined or dismissed, set against the context of the development of the Movement Orthodoxy, those writers who followed and attenuated the tradition of Philip Larkin, even as Larkin?s cultural capital fell. Ranging from the quiet work of Lee Harwood to the avant-gardism of Bob Cobbing, from the major works of Roy Fisher to the still developing sonic and semantic experiments of Maggie O?Sullivan, and covering a number of other writers in their historical context, this work is th.
