Singing School: Learning to Write (and Read) Poetry by Studying with the Masters Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Instead of rules, theories, or recipes, emphasizes ways to learn from great work: studying magnificent, monumentally enduring poems and how they are made-- in terms borrowed from the "singing school" of William Butler Yeats's "Sailing to Byzantium."
