Printer-friendly version

Edited by former United States poet laureate Robert Pinsky, Singing School:  Learning to Write (and Read) Poetry by Studying with the Masters (W. W. Norton, 2013) comprises the poet’s favorite poems organized in four sections: Freedom, Listening, Form, and Dreaming Things Up, each featuring a brief introduction by Pinksy. Pinsky's headnotes from each of the eighty poems as well as his introductions to each section take a practical, sometimes even technical approach: encouraging the reader to read poems with an informed pleasure and sharp interest in craft. The anthology includes poems by William Blake, Lewis Carroll, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Allen Ginsberg, George Herbert, Ben Johnson, Mina Loy, Andrew Marvell, Marianne Moore, Sylvia Plath, and many others.
