Some brief overview of this book

Poems in the Manner Of is an illuminating journey through centuries of writers who continue to influence new work today, including that of respected poet and series editor of The Best American Poetry David Lehman. "Very few writers can actually shape how you see the world. David Lehman is such a writer", says Robert Olen Butler.

Now the Best American Poetry series editor an Poems in the Manner Of is an illuminating journey through centuries of writers who continue to influence new work today, including that of respected poet and series editor of The Best American Poetry David Lehman. "Very few writers can actually shape how you see the world. David Lehman is such a writer", says Robert Olen Butler.

Now the Best American Poetry series editor and New School writing professor channels, translates, and imagines a collection of "poems in the manner of" Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Shakespeare, W.B. Yeats, Rilke, William Carlos Williams, and more. Lehman has been writing "poems in the manner of" for years, in homage to the poems and people that have left an impression, experimenting with styles and voices that have lingered in his mind.

Finally, he has gathered these pieces, creating a striking book of poems that channels poets from Walt Whitman to Sylvia Plath and also calls upon jazz standards, Freudian questionnaires, and astrological profiles for inspiration. Intelligent and sparkling, this is a great gift for poetry fans and a useful resource for creative writers. These are poems of wit and humor but also deep emotion and clear intelligence, informed by Lehman's genuine and knowledgeable love of poetry and literature.

From Catullus and Lady Murasaki to Wordsworth, Neruda, Virginia Woolf, W.H. Auden, and Charles Bukowski, Poems in the Manner Of shows how much life there is in poets of the past. And like Edward Hirsch's How to Read a Poem and Robert Pinsky's Singing School, this book gives you more than poetry.

Whether you're reading for pure enjoyment or examining how a poet can use references and influences in their own work, Poems in the Manner Of is a treasure trove of literary pleasures and food for thought.
