Product note

John Drury's Poetry Dictionary is no dreary list of defined terms to cram for your poetry final. It's a work of art in itself, written in Drury's engagingly lucid prose, liberally spiced with examples from the world's best poets. Curious about sequence? Drury gives a clear definition of the term, followed by Katha Pollitt's "Vegetable Poems" in sequence 1-5. Forgotten the rules of the villanelle? Drury explains the form, gives a little historic background, and presents examples by Jean Passerat, Edwin Arlington Robinson, Dylan Thomas, Weldon Kees, and James Cummins. Never has a poetry dictionary been so browsable, so erudite, and so engaging. --Stephanie Gold

Short Desription

A comprehensive collection of poetry terms, John Drury's The Poetry Dictionary is a classic reference for students and teachers alike. With all the terms needed to effectively discuss the craft, this new and revised edition is:

-Value-priced with the same helpful information as the first edition, but now in a more affordable and handy package

-Packed with examples from classic and contemporary poetry to illustrate the terms at work

-Recommended and with a foreword by Dana Gioia, head of the National Endowment for the Arts

Both comprehensive and concise, The Poetry Dictionary is a unique and useful anthology of the art.
