Summary
"If poetry is a tantalizing invitation - into the world the poem conjures, the interior life of the poet, our own interior lives - then How to Read a Poem ... and Start a Poetry Circle is a means of accepting that invitation. In gathering a potent group of poems she calls her "talismans" into this slender volume, Molly Peacock presents us with a book of ways to explore the romance we have with words we can't quite hold."--BOOK JACKET. "Like a friend, she introduces us to her friends; she shows us how to form poetry circles of our own to share our private pleasures within the rounded borders of a communal reading group. Finally, Peacock provides us with the recommendations of fellow poets with which to begin our own poetry-reading experience - and the rich, enthralling, and endlessly rewarding search for talismans of our own."--BOOK JACKET
