The one-sentence poem has proven to be a compelling and persistent poetic device through the ages. This anthology offers strategies and prompts for using the single sentence as a principle of poetic structure, a rhetorical tool, and a stimulus. The book includes an extraordinary array of one-sentence poems from a wide range of historical periods, poetic perspectives, and lengths--from epigrams and aphorisms to sonnets, lyrics, and narratives that range over several pages. More than 80 poets are represented, from Shakespeare to Kay Ryan.
