" Sometimes people may not write poetry because they don't know how to approach it, and Maddox removes the barriers. If you have ever thought about writing poetry and needed concrete tips, this is the book for you.
Author: Marjorie Maddox
Marjorie Maddox knows poetry. If I had to pick one book to introduce students to the joy of writing poems, this would be it. Maddox creates a book full of original poems to show us the inside out of every kind of poem you could ever want to write. I dare you to read a page or two without reaching for your pen and composing a poem of your own. From alliteration to sonnets and the villanelle, Marjorie Maddox makes metaphors meaningful and memorable. -Charles Ghigna - FatherGoose(R) It is clear that Marjorie Maddox loves poetry and loves her audience. The poems of the book-"How to Write a Villanelle," "How to Touch a Poem," to name two-illustrate the topics. For instance, "How to Touch a Poem" starts with "Forget distance or that anemic wave / you save for mere acquaintances and great aunts." Sometimes people may not write poetry because they don't know how to approach it, and Maddox removes the barriers. If you have ever thought about writing poetry and needed concrete tips, this is the book for you. -Kim Bridgford, editor, Mezzo Cammin Inside Out ... combines original poetry with inviting activities to guide young people in writing poetry themselves. More than two dozen inventive poems present key concepts, elements, and forms of poetry, each ... accessible and engaging. For example, her poem, "Simile Explains Metaphor," cleverly uses the teen-speak of "like" to illustrate how similes and metaphors work in just six lines. Puns, paradoxes, and alliteration, as well as clerihews, acrostics, and sonnets are all presented in pithy poems that provide a laser focus on the poetic element being introduced. Then Maddox offers nine in-depth "insider exercises" grounded in the previous poems with helpful steps and fun challenges for young writers. It's a unique combination of playful poems about poetry and crackerjack exercises for aspiring writers. - Sylvia Vardell, author of Poetry Aloud Here! and co-editor of the Poetry Friday anthologies with Janet Wong

Imagine being taught to write poetry by some of the world's greatest poets--Basho, the Japanese haiku-master; Dante, author of the Inferno; Spaniard Federico Garc'a Lorca; and others. That's just what young readers do with Poetry Inside Out. The book shows them, step-by-step, how to translate twelve poems from seven different languages, and in the process children learn poetic concepts like similes and metaphors while being inspired to create their own masterpieces. Easy-to-follow instructions take children through the process of translation, without their needing to know the original language, giving them the confidence to then shape their own poems. Each master's poem also includes fun facts about the poet; a glossary to help the aspiring young poets create their translation, whether whimsical or true to the original; sample translations from recognized professionals and students who have participated in the Poetry Inside Out program in their schools; and activities that inspire children to write their own original poems. This latest book from the innovative Poetry Inside Out in-school writing program offers children, teachers, and parents alike an opportunity to deeply engage with fantastic poetry by learning how the masters worked their magic--from the inside out. "Poetry Inside Out is a program that should be everywhere." -Robert Pinsky, Former United States Poet Laureate

Category: Biography & Autobiography
Ten years after the publication of her bestselling memoir Runaway: Diary of a Street Kid, in a collection of eloquent and affecting pieces, Evelyn Lau reflects on her life, her relationships, and her identity as a writer. Moving seamlessly through past and present, Lau describes how her complex, painful relationship with her parents has shaped her adult desires, thwarting her efforts to connect with both men and women. She recalls her dangerous battle with bulimia and examines her continued struggle against crippling depression. Revisiting her life as a prostitute, she explores the extent to which it continues to distort her perception of herself and how others view her. Lau discusses how she now values home and traces this new attitude back to her time on the streets. Above all, she considers her life as a writer, remembering the force with which her childhood passion for writing was once suppressed. She reveals the supreme importance she has come to place on her writing and explains her controversial willingness to breach the boundaries between public and private in the name of art. Beautifully written, each of these pieces is remarkable for its startling honesty, sensitivity, and painful insight. With Inside Out Evelyn Lau, an author of superb poetry and fiction, establishes herself as an accomplished nonfiction writer. From the Hardcover edition.

In February of 2008, some of us decided we wanted a writing group. Our plan was to encourage each other to write the important things of our life or just to share our stories and our musings. We have been doing this monthly since that time. The offerings in this book do not include everyone in our group or all of the writing that has gone on around laughter and joy and a few tears; but we offer a little glimpse into the joy we have been for each other to be encouraged and to be heard.

Author: Alastair Reid
Publisher: Birlinn Publishers
Now 82 years old, Alastair Reid is one of Scotland's foremost literary figures but his work is currently out of print in the UK (most recent publication is Canongate's "Oases" from 1997, but it represented only a fraction of his work). The bulk of his poetry has long been unavailable, so this wide-ranging new collection of poetry, translations and thoughts on the art of translation will present a fresh and comprehensive overview of his achievements and will appeal to existing fans and new readers. Immediately recognised as a major poet, he was published widely in the New Yorker and elsewhere from the 1950s, with poems such as 'Scotland' and 'The Academy' becoming iconic.Friend and confidant of some of the giants of 20th-century literature, he has written about Robert Graves, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Cabrera Infante and Mario Vargas Llosa. This edition includes his brilliant translations of poems by Pablo Neruda, Jorge Luis Borges and other important South American poets, as well as reflections - never bettered - on the art of translation.
A collection of poems which reflect a range of themes, such as loss, survival, the memory and body as it is born and ages, and the boundaries of human spirit.
Author: Anna Rabinowitz
Publisher: Univ of Massachusetts Press
The poems in this volume are electric with energy and rich with linguistic invention. Anna Rabinowitz's voice, which ranges from reflective to prophetic, from passionate to wry, shapes and reshapes language to complete the partial, retrieve the lost, and salvage what remains when the human body and the bodies of family, culture, and history threaten to collapse. These are poems that confront loss and celebrate survival in a world that is "context and collage, icon and diehard, push and pull, conceived and holding on."

Thoughts from the Inside Out presents author Adrienne Lirios journey of self-discovery and self-realization on an emotional level. This collection of poetry and prose, the latter in the form of rants, may offer depictions of yourself or someone close to you. We all share a commonality in our human frailties and hopes, although each of us experiences these things differently. From this journey, youll gain a new understanding of your personal feelingsand solid proof that youre not alone in these feelings. More importantly, with some insights and introspection, you can choose to move on and create a new and decidedly happier chapter in your life. Having sat upon the razors edge on many occasions for a variety of reasons feeling alone in my own misery, I decided to be proactive about its relief. I decided to write down my internal observations in the hopes it would bring insight and understanding. I chose to express these observations in two formats: poetry and what I call rant. After sharing my own views with others, it became all too clear that many of you are adrift in your own inner turmoil. I hope that I can help you understand that you are not alone in your confusion.

Publisher: UNM Press
Category: Literary Criticism
The first book devoted exclusively to the poetry and literary aesthetics of one of Native America’s most accomplished writers, this collection of essays brings together detailed critical analyses of single texts and individual poetry collections from diverse theoretical perspectives, along with comparative discussions of Vizenor’s related works. Contributors discuss Vizenor’s philosophy of poetic expression, his innovations in diverse poetic genres, and the dynamic interrelationships between Vizenor’s poetry and his prose writings. Throughout his poetic career Vizenor has returned to common tropes, themes, and structures. Indeed, it is difficult to distinguish clearly his work in poetry from his prose, fiction, and drama. The essays gathered in this collection offer powerful evidence of the continuing influence of Anishinaabe dream songs and the haiku form in Vizenor’s novels, stories, and theoretical essays; this influence is most obvious at the level of grammatical structure and imagistic composition but can also be discerned in terms of themes and issues to which Vizenor continues to return.
