A Kick in the Head

The title attracts your attention, doesn't it? This is a book about 29 poetic forms -- wait don't quit reading yet! Here is a fun way to learn about the rules of poetry, and the book shows you that sometimes poets are not slaves to every aspect of poetic form. The author tells the reader that you should think of the rules of poetry like the rules of a game; they are in place to add challenge and excitement. The book is not filled with words to confuse you, and the artwork is great, and the poems are wonderful.
