for the poet

by kbaier on Jan 5, 2008

This book covers a wide range of topics from language, thought, aesthetics, literature of music and poetry. The book can be seperated in two section: the first being the thought processes of language as a tool, and the second on the aesthetics of music and poetry, and their marriage and divorce. The books is written for the instructor as well as the student, but its particularly for the poet. Though the intellectual can still find the first half of the book engaging. While those interested in literature or meter in the latter.
