I bought this book for my Creative Writing: Poetry class and would recommend it to anyone who wants to know the basics of twentieth century poetics. It covers the most famous writers, such as Robert Frost, by summarizing their lives and providing examples of what forms of poetry they used and what makes up any particular form. Don't buy this book if you want to read poetry, but do if you want to understand it, for that is its goal, and it provides explanations of numerous types of poetry and verse.

Excellent collection of essays, lectures, and discussions on poetic theory from some pretty phenomenal writers.
