A Poetry Handbook by Mary Oliver #BookReview — 5 Comments

  1. Although I don’t want to write poetry, I still feel like a book about how to write poetry could be useful for learning how to read it. As I review books in new genres, I always feel like there’s a bit of a learning curve, figuring out what makes books in that genre good or bad for me. Reading a book like this might help me at least figure out and describe what technical aspects of poetry I like or dislike.

  2. What a wonderful review! You put into words what I generally do with poetry- ignore it and then feel guilty about it during April! I do enjoy poetry when I read it and I actually joined a poetry reading challenge just to force myself to make an effort to read more, but your review encourages me to learn about poetry by reading Mary Oliver’s book. Thank you!
