Every now and then I like to indulge in a good craft book. I am a fan of Gregory Orr’s poetry and saw this book advertised in the latest issue of The Writer’s Chronicle.
It’s targeted toward young poets—a population I do not belong to—but I do find the exercises useful. Here’s one I particularly like: create your own compendium (Orr calls it a bible) of your favorite poems to inspire you.
