How to Write a Poem by John Redmond

Book Description

This title offers an innovative introduction to writing poetry designed for students of creative writing and budding poets alike. It challenges the reader's sense of what is possible in a poem. It traces the history and highlights the potential of poetry. It focuses on the fundamental principles of poetic construction, such as: who is speaking? Who are they speaking to? And why does their speaking take this form? It considers both experimental and mainstream approaches to contemporary poetry. It consists of fourteen chapters, making it suitable for use over one semester. It encourages readers to experiment with their poetry.

Books By Author John Redmond

Alexandra Sequence by John Redmond Alexandra Sequence, Paperback (September 2016)

Explores contemporary attitudes to community and forms of anti-social behaviour

Poetry and Privacy: Questioning Public Interpretations of Contemporary British and Irish Poetry by John Redmond Poetry and Privacy: Questioning Public Interpretations of Contemporary British and Irish Poetry, Paperback (December 2012)

Redmond questions the relationships - critical, authorial, existential between poetry and the public sphere, that readings of British and Irish poetry rely on a thesis of public relevance.

MUDe by John Redmond MUDe, Paperback (June 2008)

MUDs are Multi-User Dimensions, online worlds created by language alone. Placing Irish poetry into the electronic age, this work explores the Internet and car culture, MUDs and moods. It creates a new kind of poetry from the online world's fissiparous language, elliptical, self-interrupting, and fizzing with invention.
