Description: As Poet Laureate, Robert Pinsky is one of America's best spokesmen for poetry. In this learned and concise book, he explains the basic principles of the sounds we call poetry: diction, syntax, accent and stress, verse form, and the like. "Poetry is a vocal, which is to say a bodily, art, " writes Pinsky. Citing the work of fifty different poets -- from Shakespeare and Donne to Elizabeth Bishop and Frank Bidart -- he shows how poets use the "technology" of poetry, its sound, to create works of art that are "performed" in us when we read them aloud.

This ideal introductory volume belongs in the library of every poet and student of poetry.
