Synopsis

You’re no idiot, of course. You’ve read poetry that has touched your heart, and you’d like to improve your own writing technique. But even though you have loads of inspiration, you’re discovering that good instruction can be as elusive as a good metaphor.

Don’t let your Muse leave you! With loads of smart advice and helpful exercises, The Complete Idiot’s Guide® to Writing Poetry will help you compose powerful, emotion-packed poems that you can be proud of. In this Complete Idiot’s Guide®, you get:

--Simple explanations of the building blocks of poetry—metaphor, imagery, symbolism, repetition, and more.

--A step-by-step guide to the poetic process—from your first inspiration to your poem’s last stanza.

--Easy-to-follow guidelines for writing sonnets, sestinas, narrative poems, and more!
