Structure & Surprise: Engaging Poetic Turns

Structure& amp; Surprise: Engaging Poetic Turns offers a road map for analyzing poetry through examination of poems' structure, rather than their forms or genres. Michael Theune 's breakthrough concept encourages students, eachers, and writers to use structure as a ool to see the fundamental affinities between strikingly different kinds of poetry and radically different literary eras. The nove includes examination of the mid-course turn and the poe, as well as the ronic, concessional, emblem, and retrospective-prospective structures, among others. In addition, 14 contemporary poets provide an example of and commentary on their own work.

Unlike other great craft writers like Tony Hoagland, Kim Addonizio, Robert Pinsky, and Richard Hugo among others, Theune 's book is n't exactly inspirational ( although the exercises in the back are quite good).
