Published in 1988, this book is a teacher’s eye view of how children come to write and rewrite poems, and of how they make aesthetic choices in their writing. Drawing on over twenty years’ experience of teaching poetry in primary and secondary schools, Robert Hull presents a detailed account of the process of writing poetry in the classroom. The reader is invited, almost in confidence, to be witness to a skilled teacher’s planning, recognition, and definition of children’s emergent understanding and expertise. The author adopts a non-behaviourist model which stresses difficulty and uncertainty, rejecting a simplistic assumption of linear progression, predictability of outcome, and short-term results. The many examples of poems written by the children demonstrate in a very vivid and impressive way the value of this approach. All teachers, not just of poetry, will find this a fascinating and informed study, and an inspiration for their own work in the classroom.

Of Seasons and Moods  Poetry I Left Behind the Times

In my case, however, it went the other way—I did no poetry as a young man, though the seasons were certainly ... Back East, this time living it as an adult, I only began poetry as a middle-aged thing—or really, a bit beyond middle age.

Attention Equals Life

Attention Equals Life

The Pursuit of the Everyday in Contemporary Poetry and Culture Andrew Epstein ... Gilbert also notes “this seems to have prompted a long letter from Ammons [to Bloom] in which he tries to explain the rationale behind the poem” (174).

Poetry has long been thought of as a genre devoted to grand subjects, timeless themes, and sublime beauty. Why, then, have contemporary poets turned with such intensity to documenting and capturing the everyday and mundane? Drawing on insights about the nature of everyday life from philosophy, history, and critical theory, Andrew Epstein traces the modern history of this preoccupation and considers why it is so much with us today. Attention Equals Life argues that a potent hunger for everyday life explodes in the post-1945 period as a reaction to the rapid, unsettling transformations of this epoch, which have resulted in a culture of perilous distraction. Epstein demonstrates that poetry is an important, and perhaps unlikely, cultural form that has mounted a response, and even a mode of resistance, to a culture suffering from an acute crisis of attention. In this timely and engaging study, Epstein examines why a compulsion to represent the everyday becomes predominant in the decades after modernism and why it has so often sparked genre-bending formal experimentation. With chapters devoted to illuminating readings of a diverse group of writers--including poets associated with influential movements like the New York School, language poetry, and conceptual writing--the book considers the variety of forms contemporary poetry of everyday life has taken, and analyzes how gender, race, and political forces all profoundly inflect the experience and the representation of the quotidian. By exploring the rise of experimental realism as a poetic mode and the turn to rule-governed "everyday-life projects," Attention Equals Life offers a new way of understanding a vital strain at the heart of twentieth- and twenty-first century literature. It not only charts the evolution of a significant concept in cultural theory and poetry, but also reminds readers that the quest to pay attention to the everyday within today's frenetic world of smartphones and social media is an urgent and unending task.

Dr Dharmadas Banerjee‘s book Beyond the Western Front: A Study of Siegfried Sassoon’s Poetry is an attempt to look ‗beyond‘ the popular evaluation of Sassoon as a War Poet. By the writer‘s own admission he wants to capture Sassoon‘s versatile poetic genius to dispel this popular appraisal. A poet of rare merit Sassoon is also known for his romantic sensibilities. His love for the English countryside is evident in his autobiographical memoirs. His Diaries and letters are a potent source to know about the profound influence that the catastrophic First World War had on him. The author has also tried to focus on Sassoon‘s quest for ―the world undiscovered within us‖ which is discernible in the poems of the later phase of Sassoon‘s poetic career
