The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Writing Poetry by Nikki Moustaki

This book teaches the reader about the basics of poetry and does a good job of it. It describes many different forms with examples, and goes to explain things like meter and variation, different rhyming forms, scansion, rhythm and other without being boring or too technical. It goes into discovering purpose and symbols, identifies metaphors and all that stuff they pretend everyone gets in high school classes.

I found the book enjoyable and interesting.
