Book Review: the Poet’s Companion

The Poet's Companion: A Guide to the Pleasures of Writing PoetryThe Poet’s Companion: A Guide to the Pleasures of Writing Poetry by Kim Addonizio

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Poet’s Companion is a treasure to me. It is carefully filled with selected poems by contemporary poets to illustrate certain techniques and points the writers of this book are making.

The section about publishing in the digital age is a bit outdated by now since this book was published twenty one years ago. I just skipped that part.

Other than that, the exercises they provide are very helpful. I was excited reading the book without even doing the exercises. Now I can’t wait to give it a second read.
