The Poet's Notebook
THE POET'S NOTEBOOK
"This wonderfully instructive collection of journal writings, notebooks, jottings . . . [and] workbook fragments leads us into the corners of the mind where poetry hides."
The Poet's Notebook brings together excerpts from the working notebooks of twenty-six American poets. Unsystematic, spontaneous, irreverent, intense, witty, unexpected, these notebooks shimmer with reflections, speculations, confessions, quotations, impressions, and ruminations. They create a portrait of the artist as a purposeful gatherer and sifter of every kind of experience.
Included are the notebooks from such distinguished and eclectic voices as Rita Dove, Stephen Dunn, Carolyn Forche, Alice Fulton, Donald Hall, Garrett Hongo, Joy Harjo, Donald Justice, Yusef Komunyakaa, James Merrill, Mary Oliver, Charles Simic, William Stafford, Rosanna Warren, and others.
