Useful Books for the Beginning Poet

If you’re interesting in writing poetry and not sure where to start then Writing Poems by Peter Sansom is a great introduction that’s packed full of advice. Ted Hughes’s Poetry in the Making is a gem of a book that inspires as well as educates. When you’re ready to delve deeper into form then try The Making of a Poem by Mark Strand and Eavan Boland. It gives an in depth look at each form and brings the ideas alive with a variety of examples from different voices. Enjoy.
