“Not the assertion that something is true, but the making of that truth more fully real to us.” –T. S. Eliot on poetry
Our pages on the craft of poetry provide resources for poets to hone their artistry and skills, or as Rod McKuen puts it, “a poet can’t afford to be aloof. The tools of his trade are the people he bumps up against.” The pages on the craft of poetry provide a space for poets at GHC to bump against some of the poets of the canon and contemporary writers as well. Check back regularly as we continue to grow and expand our holdings.
