Ed. by Deborah Brown et al.

U. of Arkansas Pr.

Compiled by three noted poets, this collection of poets' remarks on poetry includes comments from the classical Greek period to essays from the present day. The 102 selections are organized into sections on "musing," "making," and "mapping," which address inspiration, craft, and the role of poetry and the poet. Headnotes at the beginning of each selection provide background material on the poet and the significance of the selection. An appendix lists the essays according to specific topics.
