Ideal for teachers who have been searching for a way to inspire students with a love for writing--and reading--contemporary poetry.

It is a book about shaping your memories and passions, your pleasures, obsessions, dreams, secrets, and sorrows into the poems you have always wanted to write. If you long to create poetry that is magical and moving, this is the book you've been looking for.

Here are chapters on the language and music of poetry, the art of revision, traditional and experimental techniques, and how to get your poetry started, perfected, and published. Not the least of the book's pleasures are model poems by many of the best contemporary poets, illuminating craft discussions, and the author's detailed suggestions for writing dozens of poems about your deepest and most passionate concerns.

I have read through this book several times. It gets to the heart of poetry while still teaching/exploring the techniques of poetry. It gives a great description of the types of poetry. I recommend it to any poet. レビュー全文を読む

This was one of the texts from a poetry class that I took in college. I the class and enjoyed the book. I have tried a few other poetry writing guides since then, but have liked none so well as this. レビュー全文を読む

著者について (1995)

Born in New York in the 1930s, Steve Kowit was part of the Lower East Side poetry-reading scene in the early 1960s; later, attracted by the intellectual freedom of the Beat poets, he moved to San Francisco's Haight Ashbury. Celebrated for his electrifying readings, he taught at San Diego State, San Diego City College, UC San Diego, and the College of Southern Idaho. He edited the anthology The Maverick Poets, translated a volume of Pablo Neruda's political poetry, wrote two collections inspired by the love poetry of India, and published eight other volumes of poetry. His work appeared in numerous anthologies and magazines. Steve described himself as a "poet, essayist, teacher, workshop facilitator, and all-around no good troublemaker." Recently retired from Southwestern College in Chula Vista but still holding poetry workshops in San Diego, he died in his sleep in 2015 at home with his wife, Mary, in Potrero, CA, just days before his latest volume of poetry was published by Tampa University Press.
