Instead, it teaches you the way to distill your life, tidy your soul and create beautiful poetry. It's a satisfyingly fat book that you will never tire of using. Examples galore help you see what is being taught.
You can start at the beginning (the need for poem making) and work your way through revealing yourself in your poems, reconnecting with your creativity, experimenting with language, metaphor, making poems from journal entries, creating a community of poem-makers, breaking through your pain with words, all the way to expressing the sacred through poetry. A powerful, thorough exploration of what poetry is and how to write it, it's much more than a resource, it's a guide and encouragement for those who want to write poetry.
