A Poetry Handbook
by Mary Oliver

Mary Oliver skillfully imparts knowledge from her long, celebrated career as a distinguished poet. She walks readers through exactly how a poem is built, from meter and rhyme, to form and diction, to sound and sense, drawing on poems by Robert Frost, Elizabeth Bishop, and others.

Some poets need encouragement and guidance while others would like more of the details that go into crafting poems from the ground up. Mary Oliver is an ideal instructor.
