The List Poem: A Guide to Teaching & Writing Catalog Verse
By Larry Fagin 201 pp.
The list poem is one of the simplest ways for beginners to approach the writing of free-verse poetry. Larry Fagin’s seminal guide defines list poetry, traces its lineage from ancient times, offers writing ideas and teaching advice for list poems, and presents more than 200 examples by adults and children. “For anyone who would like to explore a poetic form that is so flexible it can be used by the beginning poet as well as the most sophisticated.”—Wisconsin Bookwatch
