"Grammar of Poetry is a masterpiece of enjoyable reading and enriching information."
-- Andrew Pudewa
Director, Institute for Excellence in Writing
 
 

This is the ideal introductory text for students and teachers discovering the art of poetry. As a "grammar," it teaches the fundamentals of poetry from scansion and rhyme to more advanced concepts like spatial poetry and synecdoche. Using the classical methodology of imitation (advocated by educators like Quintilian and Benjamin Franklin), this text makes students become active participants as they learn the craft of writing poems. It also offers practical tips and helps, including how to use a rhyming dictionary, how great writers use figures of speech effectively, and even when to break the rules of poetry. Its goal is to show students how to capably interact not just with poems, but with language in any situation.

 

Developed and used at Logos School with great success, the thirty lessons in Grammar of Poetry contain instruction on ten powerful tropes, student activities for every chapter, riddles to solve, a glossary of terms, a list of over 150 quality poems to integrate, and real-life examples from Shakespeare to traditional tongue twisters. It is designed for a semester at the 6-9th grade level, but is perfectly appropriate for anyone with basic writing skills and the desire to learn poetry.

 

This Teacher's Edition contains a final exam, instructions on using the text and grading poetry, and ideas for additional assignments, as well as answers to the exercises found in the Student Edition. For more resources, see the Grammar of Poetry DVD course.
