Review by Library Journal Review

What a splendid idea: poems about the fine art of writing poems. Some anthologies can feel lumpy or strained, but this one moves seamlessly from Cesar Pavese to Ruth Stone to Erin Belieu, each poem reminding us why we love "this art" so much. "Am I allowed to ask my book/ whether it's true I wrote it?" muses Neruda, pinpointing precisely the sense of wonder captured by this book. (c) Copyright 2010.
