How Poetry Can Change Your Heart

How Poetry Can Change Your Heart

by Andrea Gibson Author and Megan Falley Author

Always wished you could understand poetry at all, much less feel it deeply? Here's your guide, exuberantly written by poetry enthusiasts who can effectively and even dare we say poetically teach you what you need to know about poetry appreciation. Their lessons are solid: How to find poetry you like, how to tell if a poem is "good," letting go of needing to intellectually understand a poem that gives you chills, and a stirring case for how poetry can expand our horizons, empathy, and experience. Includes interactive guides to types of poetry, finding poetry in your everyday life, and writing poems even if you don't think of yourself as a poet. A heartfelt little book that few will pick up without having it change your perspective in some small or large but real way.
