The cover is set in black color with an emerging photo of the author, making it creative and unique. You don’t see such covers now-a-days.
Firstly I thought, the title must mean that its an guide to budding poets. But Later, I understood the Author’s creativity in it. It is a Stand out Novel if compared with other Anthology Novels.
There are five sections in the book, which are as following:
1) Are You Looking For That Poet?
2) A Poet As A Young Man
3) Making A Poem
4) A Poem Comes Alive
5) A Poet
The Best part about this book is that it is one of its kind anthology, where the readers not only discover new poems but also learns about how the verses are written and woven together in a thoughtful way that results into creative poems which have deep meaning.
I am not happy about How few poems ended unexpectedly, which i didn’t understood.
All in all, I am impressed by the choice of words of the author and i recommend it to everyone who really wants to understand the fundamentals of “Making a Poem”.
