Read & download Singing School Singing School Characters Û 107 A bold new approach to writing and reading poetry based on great poetry of the pastuick joyful and playfully astringent with surprising comparisons and examples this collection takes an unconventional approach to the art of poetry Instead of rules theories or recipes Singing School emphasizes ways to learn from great work studying magnificent monumentally enduring poems and how they are made. I m sorry It s possible I just don t get Robert Pinsky but I doubt it I know his poetry and anthologies are almost universally beloved but I can t find much to love in either I ll limit my comments in this review to ones regarding only Singing SchoolWhile the introduction was promising and had me reaching for my highlighter and pen to add excited marginalia once the book proper began I was wholly disappointed For two reasons First Pinksy s analyses of the poems are limited to a pithy sentence or two which serve to highlight some formal element and pose a writing challenge for the reader Granted he discusses some of the poems in each chapter introduction but these go no than detail and surface deep Second while Pinsky suggests early in the book that he ll be focusing on older works as examples because doing so inhibits imitation and forces aspiring writers to discover essence Fine But the poems he selects just don t move me Yes they may embody a particular point Pinsky is making but I find it hard to believe those were the best he could find Excerpting INCREDIBLY long passages from these poems also gives the impression of his trying to turn a much slimmer volume into a longer workI was inspired to create my own anthology of poems which make me see anew Maybe that s a good lesson from Singing School
