In the Words of its editors, The Making of a Poem "looks squarely at some of the headaches and mysteries of poetic form". Here, two of our foremost poets provide a lucid, straightforward primer for those who have always felt that an understanding of form -- sonnet, ballad, villanelle, sestina, etc. -- would enhance their appreciation of poetry. By example and explanation, the anthology traces "the exuberant history of forms", a history that unites poets as diverse as John Keats and Joy Harjo (the Ode) or Geoffrey Chaucer and Jean Toomer (the Stanza). Each chapter is devoted to one form, offering explanation, close reading, and a rich selection of exemplars that amply demonstrate the power and possibility of the form.
