A Poke in the I A Collection of Concrete Poems by Paul B. Janeczko


A Poke in the I A Collection of Concrete Poems by Paul B. Janeczko

The words in a concrete poem form a shape that complements the meaning of the poem. They may wiggle about, curve around or hurtle down the page, but they will always startle and delight the eye. John Agard, Sylvia Cassedy, John Hegley, Roger McGough, Edwin Morgan ...these are just a few of the celebrated poets included in Paul B. Janeczko's intriguing selection of concrete poems, illustrated with pizzazz by Chris Raschka.


A companion to poetry collection A Kick in the Head .
