Poet's Work, Poet's Play free pdf This is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in the art and craft of contemporary poetry. A follow up to the highly praised ""Poets Teaching Poets"", Daniel Tobin and Pimone Triplett's ""Poet's Work, Poet's Play"" gathers together essays by some of the most important voices in contemporary poetry: Carl Dennis, Stephen Dobyns, Tony Hoagland, Heather McHugh, Ellen Bryant Voigt, Eleanor Wilnor, Dean Young, and the late Larry Levis and Agha Shahid Ali. Lively, accessible, and erudite, the pieces range from discussions on syntax and the syllable to the complexities of canon formation under the shadow of imperialism, race, and history. Exploring the work of John Donne, William Butler Yeats, Robert Frost, Philip Larkin, Charles Olsen, Ezra Pound, Anne Carson, Robert Herrick, Harryette Mullen and many others, ""Poet's Work, Poet's Play"" - like its predecessor volume - will be an invaluable tool for teachers, students, and poets at every level.
