A kick in the head : an everyday guide to poetic forms by Paul B Janeczko( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and French and held by 2,131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this splendid and playful volume, acclaimed poetry anthologist Paul B. Janeczko and Caldecott Honor illustrator Chris Raschka present lively examples of twenty-nine poetic forms, demonstrating not only the (sometimes bendable) rules of poetry, but also the spirit that brings these forms so wonderfully to life. Featuring formal poems, some familiar and some never before published, from the likes of Eleanor Farjeon (aubade), X.J. Kennedy (elegy), Ogden Nash (couplet), Liz Rosenberg (pantoum), and William Shakespeare, the sonnet king himself, A Kick in the Head perfectly illustrates Robert Frost's maxim that poetry without rules is like a tennis match without a net. --

The death of the hat : a brief history of poetry in 50 objects by Paul B Janeczko( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Poetry, scholars claim, is one of the oldest living art forms. This collection traces the canon from the Middle Ages - when poets may have written about a sword, a candle, or a bookworm - to the current day, when their subjects might be cocoa or a birthday card. Yet a fascination with the natural world has held true for poets across the millennia, as evidenced by Cui Tu's Tang Dynasty poem "A Solitary Wildgoose" and Mary Oliver's contemporary poem "The Summer Day." Is it possible to sum up more than one thousand years of poetry in 50 poems? Of course it is not. But Paul B. Janeczko and Chris Raschka bring intelligence and joy to the mission in this, their fourth poetry anthology collaboration for young and not-so-young readers
