A Kick in the Head An Everyday Guide to Poetic Forms by Paul B. Janeczko

As Robert Frost once said, Poetry without rules is like a tennis match without a net. In this splendid and playful volume, acclaimed poetry anthologist Paul Janeczko and Caldecott Honor illustrator Chris Raschka present lively examples of 29 poetic forms, illuminating not only the (sometimes bendable) rules of poetry, but also the spirit that brings these forms so wonderfully to life.
