Format: Paperback
"Poetry" is about poetry and not a book of poetry. It is Q's opinion of what is good poetry, and is a reprint of one of the hardback 'Fellowship Books' edited by Mary Stratton in 1914. There are plenty of blank pages for one's own notes (10). The content more than compensates for the awkward size (7.5ins. x 9.25ins.)but any reprint of this Master's work is a welcome addition to ones library.

This isn't a book of poems but rather an essay about poetry. He compares poetry to other things, like music and philosophy, and then discusses poetry on its own. He's obviously done a lot of reading becuuse he quotes many other writers to show what they think of poetry. I liked it a lot, and it's short- you can read it in about an hour.

Reviews online for this book are generally poor, but I think it's only because the title misleads readers. This is not a book of poems, but rather an exploration of the poet as a creator who is able to reconcile (and translate for the rest of us) his inner harmony with the harmony of the Universe. Quiller-Couch uses lines from great works of literature as well as some of his own to depict the Poet as "a helper of man's most insistent spiritual need." And that is how the book served me, and why I rewarded it 5 stars, for that is what it was for me: a helper as I sought to find the rhythm in the poetry I so adore which is an echo of the rhythm that is bigger than all I see.

This is not your typical rhyming style of poetry..this is more of the history of the author..I didn't care for it.
