" Sometimes people may not write poetry because they don't know how to approach it, and Maddox removes the barriers. If you have ever thought about writing poetry and needed concrete tips, this is the book for you.
Author: Marjorie Maddox
Marjorie Maddox knows poetry. If I had to pick one book to introduce students to the joy of writing poems, this would be it. Maddox creates a book full of original poems to show us the inside out of every kind of poem you could ever want to write. I dare you to read a page or two without reaching for your pen and composing a poem of your own. From alliteration to sonnets and the villanelle, Marjorie Maddox makes metaphors meaningful and memorable. -Charles Ghigna - FatherGoose(R) It is clear that Marjorie Maddox loves poetry and loves her audience. The poems of the book-"How to Write a Villanelle," "How to Touch a Poem," to name two-illustrate the topics. For instance, "How to Touch a Poem" starts with "Forget distance or that anemic wave / you save for mere acquaintances and great aunts." Sometimes people may not write poetry because they don't know how to approach it, and Maddox removes the barriers. If you have ever thought about writing poetry and needed concrete tips, this is the book for you. -Kim Bridgford, editor, Mezzo Cammin Inside Out ... combines original poetry with inviting activities to guide young people in writing poetry themselves. More than two dozen inventive poems present key concepts, elements, and forms of poetry, each ... accessible and engaging. For example, her poem, "Simile Explains Metaphor," cleverly uses the teen-speak of "like" to illustrate how similes and metaphors work in just six lines. Puns, paradoxes, and alliteration, as well as clerihews, acrostics, and sonnets are all presented in pithy poems that provide a laser focus on the poetic element being introduced. Then Maddox offers nine in-depth "insider exercises" grounded in the previous poems with helpful steps and fun challenges for young writers. It's a unique combination of playful poems about poetry and crackerjack exercises for aspiring writers. - Sylvia Vardell, author of Poetry Aloud Here! and co-editor of the Poetry Friday anthologies with Janet Wong

Publisher: Birlinn Publishers
Now 82 years old, Alastair Reid is one of Scotland's foremost literary figures but his work is currently out of print in the UK (most recent publication is Canongate's "Oases" from 1997, but it represented only a fraction of his work).

Immediately recognised as a major poet, he was published widely in the New Yorker and elsewhere from the 1950s, with poems such as 'Scotland' and 'The Academy' becoming iconic.Friend and confidant of some of the giants of 20th-century literature, he has written about Robert Graves, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Cabrera Infante and Mario Vargas Llosa. This edition includes his brilliant translations of poems by Pablo Neruda, Jorge Luis Borges and other important South American poets, as well as reflections - never bettered - on the art of translation.

Imagine being taught to write poetry by some of the world's greatest poets--Basho, the Japanese haiku-master; Dante, author of the Inferno; Spaniard Federico Garc'a Lorca; and others. That's just what young readers do with Poetry Inside Out. The book shows them, step-by-step, how to translate twelve poems from seven different languages, and in the process children learn poetic concepts like similes and metaphors while being inspired to create their own masterpieces. Easy-to-follow instructions take children through the process of translation, without their needing to know the original language, giving them the confidence to then shape their own poems. Each master's poem also includes fun facts about the poet; a glossary to help the aspiring young poets create their translation, whether whimsical or true to the original; sample translations from recognized professionals and students who have participated in the Poetry Inside Out program in their schools; and activities that inspire children to write their own original poems. This latest book from the innovative Poetry Inside Out in-school writing program offers children, teachers, and parents alike an opportunity to deeply engage with fantastic poetry by learning how the masters worked their magic--from the inside out. "Poetry Inside Out is a program that should be everywhere." -Robert Pinsky, Former United States Poet Laureate

In February of 2008, some of us decided we wanted a writing group. Our plan was to encourage each other to write the important things of our life or just to share our stories and our musings. We have been doing this monthly since that time. The offerings in this book do not include everyone in our group or all of the writing that has gone on around laughter and joy and a few tears; but we offer a little glimpse into the joy we have been for each other to be encouraged and to be heard.

In a time of dynamism and contradiction in Pacific cultural production, a time of 'turning things over' and 'writing from the inside out, ' this far-reaching volume provides a comprehensive set of essays and interviews on the emergent literatures of the New Pacific. With its dynamic combination of important position papers, polemics, and decolonizing critiques by noted authors and of analysis by new and established post-colonial scholars, this volume exposes 'the maze and mix of literatures and cultural identities breaking down and building up across the Pacific Ocean.' This pioneering work will be the definitive resource for anyone researching or teaching Pacific literature and will be invaluable for bringing Pacific culture to readers outside the region

This collection of papers is the outcome of the symposium "Modernism and Postmodernism in Chinese Literature", which took place at Aarhus University, Denmark in October 1991, was arranged by Bei Dao and Anne Wedell-Wedellsborg of the Institute of East Asian Studies. One of the guiding ideas behind this initiative was to bring together scholars from Europe and America with China in the 1980s, as scholars, critics, editors or as writers. Those who study China, regardless of national origin, are increasingly abandoning the "objective" stance of writing about culture, and insisting on their own right to become participants in the creation of culture. This book brings together essays written by those who breach the categories -- scholars, cultural critics and writers, ethnic Chinese and non-Chinese. All of the contributors are working or studying in Western universities, and many have published in the overseas literary journal "Jintian". This mix marks the study of Chinese literature as a new space where Chinese literary discourse is not only studied, but also created. Although contributions to this volume are diverse, a central theme is the attempt to discover how literature is changing in definition and social function. Essays analyse the concepts of the autonomy of art and creativity, modernism and subjectivity, and the form and structure of narrative language. The focus on theory and rhetoric that informs these essays highlights a concern with the way in which literary discourse is represented by intellectuals, and the way in which this representation itself becomes a frame that constructs literary meaning. Investigations into the Mao Wenti (the Maoist literary style) that persists even in post-Mao writers, the seemingly contentless language of Can Wue's work, the concept "pure literature" and the anti-modernity stance of the poetic Feifei (No-no) school all provide clues to the developing cultural consciousness of contemporary China.
