Subtitled The Autobiography of the Works of a Poet," this unique volume was the result of a series of informal conversations in the mid-1950s between Dr. Williams, his wife, and Edith Heal, then a student at Columbia University. In the relaxed atmosphere of the Williams home in Rutherford, New Jersey, the three discussed, chronologically, the poet's works as collected on his very own library shelves. "There was an air of discovery about the whole procedure," Miss Heal writes in her introduction, "the poet's excited 'Why I'd forgotten this dedication,' the unexpected appearance of reviews that had been tucked away in the pages of the books, pencilled corrections in the text, scrawled first drafts on prescription blanks." I Wanted to Write a Poem is, then, a brief "talking" bibliography, alive with the Williamses' memories of the circumstances in which the books were brought into being - in Miss Heal's words, "a nostalgic review of the early twentieth-century literary world." "

He wanted to write a poem, and ended up writing more than one.The word "poetry" is a noun. It means a literary work in which special intensity is given to the expression of feelings and ideas by the use of distinctive style and rhythm. This poet does not know if what he's written fits this standard definition, however those who believe in him do. Because of them, this collection of his attempts to express his own thoughts, feelings, and ideas in poem form was put together. In it you will find poems on a myriad of topics, from anxiety and depression to love and hope. The author's only wish is that you, the reader, can connect with them and perhaps be able to see the world from a different viewpoint, if only for a few lines. Enjoy

In October 1949 the poet William Carlos Williams received a letter from a young man from India who was studying engineering at Stanford University but wanted to write poetry. Williams was intrigued enough to write back. Their intense epistolary relationship, lasting almost a decade and little known up to now, is chronicled in this edition of their letters. Rayaprol returned to India and lived a quiet life as a civil engineer. Yet his commitment to poetry, spurred by Dr. Williams’s long-distance mentoring, never faltered, and the three collections he published eventually gained him a lasting position in the canon of postcolonial Anglophone poetry in India. Rich in personal details, feelings, and moods, the Rayaprol-Williams correspondence is particularly significant as it provides valuable information about transnational literary modernism in the context of American cultural influence during the Cold War as well as the role played by US philanthropic organizations and their relationship to overt and covert CIA operations in India.

Poetry can be both political and pedagogical. It is utilised in a variety of ways in research to enhance, critique, analyse, and express different voices. Poetry, Method and Education Research brings together international scholars to explore issues as diverse as neoliberalism, culture, decolonising education, health, and teacher identities. A key strength of the book is its attention to poetry as a research method, including discussions of "how to" engage with poetry in research, as well as including a range of research poems. Poetry is thus framed as both a method and performance. Authors in this book address a wide variety of questions from different perspectives including how to use poetry to think about complex issues in education, where poetry belongs in a research project, how to write poetry to generate and analyse "data", and how poetry can represent these findings. This book is an essential resource for students and researchers in education programmes, and those who teach in graduate research methods courses.

I thought poetry was simply what sounded good on a page, and did not matter whether it made sense or not. So when I took my poetry to show Dr. Andy, my first poetry professor, he told me they were not very good. That put an end to my endeavor to be a young poet. I am glad I listened to Dr. Andy, and did not try to prematurely force myself to write what I believed were poems. By the time I became a graduate student in Creative Writing at UC Davis, I was going through the motions of following a lifelong pursuit to become a writer. Honestly, my first year here, I did not feel the urge to write. Everything was dandy: I had just gotten married, my grandmother was recovering from her illness, and I was familiar with Davis and loved living here. I think I only completed two stories my first year, and both were requirements for workshop. After the first year, I went on PELP and moved to Washington State and lived in the ghetto with my husband for a year. I think it was during that year that I learned why I needed to write. I saw how bad things were, for other people and for myself. I became friends with a neighbor who was a 65 year old disabled man on welfare. I would come home to find gigantic chalk circles all over the courtyard cement, and he would tell me that he drew them in order to keep track of intruder footprints. He said the landlord was a pimp who was trying to convert his female tenants to prostitutes, and that I needed to be careful. He spoke about a daughter who refused to have anything to do him. I also met a variety of other characters: a 19 year old army wife who had a disabled infant son, whose husband was addicted to gambling. A single mother soldier, who had a 5 year old daughter she constantly neglected due to her complicated love life. My next door neighbors were a pair of heroin addicts who got arrested every month or so. The woman got pregnant and had a baby at some point, but we never saw or heard it. All we saw was a picture of the baby taped to her window. There was mold taking over our living space. Due to the year round humid weather of Washington, every time I moved a piece of furniture to vacuum, I would discover a patch of fuzzy green mold thriving on the carpet. While I was absorbing all of this, I felt like I urgently needed to write, because it was the only worthwhile thing that could have come out of it. It was not that I wanted to write out of fascination, but the situation made me feel like the only thing I could do to make living satisfying was to create. However, because I hadn't written anything creatively for so long, I could not write. Every day I woke up and struggled with the urge and the inability to write. I was worried that I had lost my talent. Once again my health declined, and I developed allergies to things like water, and mold, of course. When I came back to finish my second year, there were a few big changes in my life: I got divorced, my grandmother passed away, and I decided that I never wanted to be restricted by something like a marriage again. I made a conscious decision that I am going to do what I want from now on, which is to be a truck driver and a writer at the same time, after I graduate. These things were depressing, but liberating at the same time. The changes I went through were so traumatic, and the feelings they stirred were so intense, that I turned to writing poetry. I was surprised, as I never felt the need to write poetry before, but I knew there was no other way to express myself. Nothing else could calm me or convince me that everything was going to be okay. It was then that I felt like I truly understood what poetry did for me. It held everything together, and made things real. When I wrote a poem that portrayed an ambiguous feeling or atmosphere, the poem itself was the purpose, the point. It combed through the chaotic things in my head, and told me it was nice to have that chaos after all. Poetry was an emergency. If I did not write it, I felt like something terrible was going to take over. When I showed Joe and Alan my poems, and they were encouraging, I was very happy. Under Joe's guidance I was able to adjust my voice, and be trained to recognize a poem better. I think being able to feel okay with writing poetry is one of my biggest gains from the program. It was during Winter quarter that I decided I should finish a novel I started back in Washington, one I could not finish due to my writer's block. I did not plan on investing that much into this novel, simply because I thought I had found my purpose in poetry. However, as I started getting into it, I realized that fiction does something for me as well. It provided me with an escape route, at the least, especially with a longer piece like this. I felt like I was living in a different world, and I was allowed to do certain things because I was trying to make this world more real. Sometimes I would confuse things in the novel with real memories. I would think a person existed when they didn't. I guess that is what I had been trying to accomplish all along when I write. I'm pleased with the way this novel turned out, and I plan on expanding it. I guess the point of recounting all of this, is to show a pattern that would answer the question, "Why write?"--I write because sometimes I am bored or scared of daily life, and need a way to either understand it or escape it in my head. I write when my life combines the worst of everything: boredom, and horror. Writing makes me feel like there is an answer, and a point to all of this. It isn't fun or clever. It is based on individual need. I think that as long as I am honest about that need, and as long as I write only about what I need to write about, I can be a good writer. And I think that, having chosen to live the way I want to, I will always feel the need to write. I hope my thesis reflects both the need, and the honesty.

The Crafty Poet II is organized into ten sections, beginning with "Revising Your Process." That section is followed by one on "Entryways into Poems" which considers how a poet might get going with a poem and how a poet might pull in a reader with humor and enticing titles. There is in-depth discussion of the importance of choosing the right words; using syntax, line breaks, and spacing to advantage; and enhancing the music of poems. There is a meaty section on how to add complication to your poems, another on how to divert or transform your poems from their original intention, and another on special forms of poems. In "Expanding the Material" three poets consider how to write poetic sequences using paintings, photographs, and history. The final section, "Revision," moves beyond the usual advice to "get rid of adjectives" as one poet offers ways to revise via sound, another offers a series of expansion strategies, and, finally, poet Dick Allen issues a warning against excessive revision. All ten sections include three craft tips, each provided by an experienced, accomplished poet. Each of these thirty craft tips is followed by a Model poem and a Prompt based on the poem. Each model poem is used as a mentor, expressing the underlying philosophy of the book that the best teacher of poetry is a good poem. Each prompt is followed by two Sample poems which suggest the possibilities for the prompts and should provide for good discussion about what works and what doesn't. Each section includes a Poet on the Poem Q&A about the craft elements in one of the featured poet's poems. Each section concludes with a Bonus Prompt, each of which provides a stimulus on those days when you just can't get your engine started.

Passages of Me was never intended to be a poetry collection book. It started out as just one poem, the first poem in the book. I submitted that poem to the American Library of Poetry. After that poem was selected, I began getting really good feedback. This incited me to continue writing poems. After I finished around the first thirty, I would joke around, saying, Fifty poems, and I will be published. This made me change my approach to poetry. Instead of rhythms that make you smile, it should make you reflect and make you think about how you feel, how you act towards people and yourself. Also, I wanted to give people a piece of me. Every poem has meaning, yet mine may not be the same yours. I wanted to write poems where people could understand my meaning yet still be able to side with theirs. I wanted to have certain poems about things that go on around the world and other things that happen within ourselves. This poetry book was a way for me to express myself in a positive manner. I hope you enjoy it as Im showing you the inner me.

No one is more surprised than Philip Nason when an uprising occurs within the walls of a New York rehabilitation hospital. Moments after Phil, director of recreation, hears that a group of mostly paraplegic patients have staged a rebellion, he learns that the hospital’s director is furious and thinks the patients were inspired by Phil’s current-events reading program. Now with his job in jeopardy, Phil is torn between his desire to empower his patients and pleasing hospital bureaucrats. After the rebel patients beg Phil to create an activity program to help them win the respect of hospital staff and improve their lives, he eventually complies. When Phil acts on a hunch and pops the end of a paint brush into young quadriplegic Clayton Thomas’s mouth, Clayton begins creating beautiful paintings inspired by the Bible. Phil, spurred by his artistic goals, begins developing a program to showcase the patients’ artwork. Now all he has to do is convince the hospital’s reluctant administrators that unleashing their patients’ creativity is a good thing. In this inspiring story, hundreds of chronically ill patients realize the power of art while rising up against the stifling restrictions of institutional bureaucracy—with help from their determined recreational director.
