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.
