A Quote From The Book's Foreword
"John Drury has designed an invaluable book for poets. He has not only provided concise, clear, accurate, and current definitions of the terms and traditions of poetry; he has also presented judiciously selected examples of each form, genre, movement, or period. . . . Learning should mix instruction with delight, accessibility with surprise. The Poetry Dictionary opens its subject to the reader with exemplary pride and enjoyment. No lover of poetry will find this book less than a pleasure," says Dana Gioia, head of the National Endowment for the Arts.
