The Poet Laureate's clear and entertaining account of how poetry works. "Poetry is a vocal, which is to say a bodily, art," Robert Pinsky declares in The Sounds of Poetry. "The medium of poetry is the human body: the column of air inside the chest, shaped into signifying sounds in the larynx and the mouth. In this sense, poetry is as physical or bodily an art as dancing." As Poet Laureate, Pinsky is one of America's best spokesmen for poetry. In this fascinating book, he explains how poets use the "technology" of poetry--its sounds--to create works of art that are "performed" in us when we read them aloud. He devotes brief, informative chapters to accent and duration, syntax and line, like and unlike sounds, blank and free verse. He cites examples from the work of fifty different poets--from Shakespeare, Donne, and Herbert to W. C. Williams, Frost, Elizabeth Bishop, C. K. Williams, Louise Glück, and Frank Bidart. This ideal introductory volume belongs in the library of every poet and student of poetry.

Sound—one of the central elements of poetry—finds itself all but ignored in the current discourse on lyric forms. The essays collected here by Marjorie Perloff and Craig Dworkinbreak that critical silence to readdress some of thefundamental connections between poetry and sound—connections that go far beyond traditional metrical studies. Ranging from medieval Latin lyrics to a cyborg opera, sixteenth-century France to twentieth-century Brazil, romantic ballads to the contemporary avant-garde, the contributors to The Sound of Poetry/The Poetry of Sound explore such subjects as the translatability of lyric sound, the historical and cultural roles of rhyme,the role of sound repetition in novelistic prose, theconnections between “sound poetry” and music, between the visual and the auditory, the role of the body in performance, and the impact of recording technologies on the lyric voice. Along the way, the essaystake on the “ensemble discords” of Maurice Scève’s Délie, Ezra Pound’s use of “Chinese whispers,” the alchemical theology of Hugo Ball’s Dada performances, Jean Cocteau’s modernist radiophonics, and an intercultural account of the poetry reading as a kind of dubbing. A genuinely comparatist study, The Sound of Poetry/The Poetry of Sound is designed to challenge current preconceptions about what Susan Howe has called “articulations of sound forms in time” as they have transformed the expanded poetic field of the twenty-first century.

An Echo of Applause is the latest of six collections of poetry published by this author. Dr. Robert Birch is retired after almost 35 years of practice as a psychologist specializing in marital and sex therapy. Initially he wrote bawdy limericks and then moved on to other forms of verse. His first book of poetry is highly erotic, but with each successive publication he has moved toward broader topics. This book is a prime example of his versatility, not only in subject matter, but also in form. Poems in this book are grouped into these overlapping categories: Ballads & Such, Youth, Life and Death, Perils of Aging, Virtue and Value, Love Won and Lost, People Watching, Nature, Sonnets, Memories, The Villanelle, Protest, Poets and their Poems, Dreams, Stories, Two Odes, Voice of Eros, Cinquain Collection, and Haiku. Within the 200 pages, you will find humorous verse, as well as poems of a more serious nature. You will find poems written in strict meter and perfect rhyme, but also many examples of free verse. The book will appeal to those who like reading poetry they can understand, poetry that will make them laugh as well as think, and poetry that they can easily related to.
