Poetry is now awash with new ideas. Not only in the top magazines will poets find references to deconstruction, intertextuality, hermeneutics, metaphor theory and other new critical terms. The issues raised are important, whether your own work is traditional or avant-garde. The advanced section offers helpful summaries, analyses and thought-provoking arguments — all presented as sensible advice for the working poet. Poetry Magic provides the bare bones of what you need to know, in digestible, easy-to-read form, plus the references to take your reading further.
