A combination anthology, primer, and custom Magnetic Poetry set, this book with a magnet-ready inside front cover is a portable poetry kit. Taking poetry out of the academy and into the neighborhoods, here are poems from schoolchildren and stockbrokers, grandmothers, housewives, and punk rockers. 'The Magnetic Poetry Book of Poetry' comes with a vinyl pouch that includes more than 100 word tiles, offering many words not available in other Magnetic Poetry kits. Plus, a poetry primer shows how to polish verses. From ways to approach poetry-sound, rhythm, visual impact to forms - haiku, lune, cinquain, and writing exercises - lists, menus, concrete poems, rhymes and alliterations, and more. Foreword by Robert Pinsky.
