The Poet’s Notebook: Inspiration, Techniques, and Advice on Craft

Description: Unlined, 6.75″x10.0″, 96 pages. Following the tremendous success of The Musician’s Notebook, this parchment notebook is a worthy companion for poets and wordsmiths of all ages. Part blank journal, part helpful workbook and reference, its pages are highlighted with insight from famous poets, an exercise to summon the muse, or the definition of a classic poetic technique, such as onomatopoeia and alliteration. The content is first-rate, and the format is wonderfully inspiring. This ingenious and useful writing too also includes a 6-page appendix with rules of form, meter, and rhythm, to help readers compose their own sonnets, haiku, and other poems.

Condition: overstock/like new except for very, very minor scratches/bumps.
