Description
Powerful and moving, silly or cynical, poetry is language's shining gemstone. Yet it can also be rather daunting to read and difficult to comprehend. In A Grain of Poetry, Herbert Kohl opens the door to communication with poetry. Reading it, he says, requires giving oneself over to the language and sentiments of the poem. Rather than provide a critical analysis of what "good" poetry is, Kohl offers a series of guideposts to help everyone discover what a poem is truly saying. He covers all the essential, but often uncharted, paths to understanding poetry: form and structure, line breaks and pauses, rhythm and melody, imagery, and recitation. His comprehensive and highly accessible book is for poetry lovers -- and potential poetry lovers -- everywhere.
