Synopsis

From the haiku to the sonnet, from the dactyl to the trochee, The Poet's Craft provides a handy guide to the forms and devices used by poets over the centuries. Arranged alphabetically for easy reference, the book explains clearly, with examples, the different forms of rhyme, metre and verse with which poets shape their ideas.







This highly practical handbook will appeal to professional and amateur writers alike, as well as being invaluable to English teachers and students. It will become an essential text on courses in all areas of English, Drama and Creative Writing and at a range of different levels, spanning from AS/A level to those in Further Education.

Sandy Brownjohn is the well-known and respected author of many succesful books on the writing of poetry in schools as well as other inspirational educational publications. She is an educational consultant in the UK, with many years' experience as a teacher. She is also a published poet for children.
