This book isn't *exactly* what I was looking for in that regard, but it is a wonderful book, and has given me so much insight into poetry. It is intelligent but not academic, thoughtful but not touchy-feely. I think this is the best book on writing poetry I have come across. The exercises (if that's what your looking for) are taunting and clever.
