Frog praises night: poems with commentary by F. Richard Thomas

By F. Richard Thomas

Via a clean, innovative format—prefaces and afterwords that comic strip the nature of the poet, that offer perception into how he writes and what evokes him—Richard Thomas has cap­tured during this publication of his personal poems the flavour and pleasure of a poetry read­ing. The book’s 3 sections (My acquaintances; My family; My Self) not just exhibit the poem but additionally ac­quaint the reader with the method of writing poetry. Defining his target during this e-book, Thomas says, “I wish untrained readers may perhaps higher comprehend the materials of poetry—metaphor, ambiguity, mys­tery. As for skilled readers, i'm hoping they're going to locate the reviews as interest­ing as these they could listen at a read­ing.” this can be a nondidactic e-book for inventive writing sessions and a textual content for either English schooling classes and lan­guage arts equipment classes in educa­tion. and naturally a e-book in case you relish poetry.
