At some point, every student must not only learn about different poetic forms, but try their hand at penning a few. It can be daunting, even for those who enjoy poetry.
Following the same plain language, straight forward vein of Homework Helpers: Essays and Term Papers, So You Have to Write a Poem gives novices an easy-to-read guide with step-by-step processes and fun examples while giving more advanced poets a technical guide to the rules behind all their favorite poetic forms.
This volume includes:
- Nine forms of poetry, including chapters on ballads, blank verse, haiku, heroic couplets, limericks, the pantoum, sestinas, sonnets, and the villanelle.
- Overviews on poetry basics like meter and rhyme scheme.
- Detailed, easy-to-understand instructions and “cheat sheets” that outline the rules for each form of poetry.
- And a section with a detailed explanation of how to analyze a poem.
