'Easy reading about writing poetry' is a great descriptor for this book on writing poetry. Aimed at young writers who want to explore poetry as an outlet for their talents, the author describes the process in plain language, avoiding the trap of being too esoteric for average readers. Several poetic terms are defined by necessity, but there is no excursion into the bewildering world of types of poetry. Examples of poetry and hints for writing are based on free verse or blank verse, the styles of many contemporary poets. Several exercises are included in the body of the text and appendix. Writing in an engaging style, the author puts young writers at ease as they approach poetry for the first time or continue to expand their horizons in the world of literature.
