The Shape Of Poetry
A Practical Guide to Writing & Reading Poems
Peter Meinke is the author of fifteen books of poetry, seven of them in the prestigious Pitt Poetry Series. This book, with drawings by Jeanne Clark Meinke, introduces writers and readers alike to the art and craft of the contemporary poem. The reviewer for
The Tampa Tribune
describes it well:
This book is so unpretentiously written, so clear in its purpose, and so generously illustrated with poetic selections that it is a delight to read. Anyone, poetic or not, can learn a lot effortlessly in the hands of this gifted teacher and poet.
