Poetry Echoes Though The Ages
Searching the history of poetry is to discover a language connecting people throughout the centuries. Poetry appears on records of most literate cultures and can be found on monoliths, rune stones and stele. Joree Williams has studied different poetic forms from many countries, and has chosen examples to help you as you search for your poetic voice.
Some poems were selected as an example of the sameness in all societies; while others were chosen as they have no counterpart in any other country. For students of poetry, this s a useful learning and reference book.
This book contains an impressive variety of poems, presented in many styles, with each structure broken down and explained. There are examples of narrative, free verse, didactic, lyric, prose, blank verse, allegory and more. For readers who enjoy poetry for its own sake, the compositions by Joree Williams are not only filled with wisdoms and passionate emotion, but you will also find yourself getting lost within many of the pieces. Thoroughly entertaining as well as educational!
