This primer provides aspiring poets with 12 fundamental “tools”—poetic elements and forms—for writing poetry. Skillful, concise explanations of the basic components of poetry and such forms as acrostic, concrete, and haiku are further illuminated using examples of works by authors. Loewen’s informal text and the accompanying poems are particularly adept at explaining the sometimes-difficult-to-grasp concepts of rhythm, rhyme, metaphor, and simile.
