• Our text for poetry is Sound and Sense.  Quite a book.  You can buy a copy for yourself here.  You'll love it!  It was written by one of my personal heroes, Laurence Perrine.
     
    Can you see the halo?
     
    Perrine gives us a tool kit for opening up poems, a vocabulary for understanding them, an approach for discovering their depths and beauties.
     
    Poems are like lobsters.  They're a lot of work to get at the good stuff, but oh, so worth it.
