For the Bookshelf: Poets on Teaching

Book cover for "Poets on Teaching" by Joshua Marie WilkinsonPoets on Teaching: A Sourcebook
Edited by Joshua Marie Wilkinson
University of Iowa Press 2010

In response to a lack of source works for wide-ranging approaches to teaching poetry, award-winning poet and University of Denver alum Joshua Marie Wilkinson (PhD English ’07) has gathered 99 short essays for poets, critics and scholars who teach and for students who wish to learn about the many ways poets think about how a poem comes alive from within — and beyond — a classroom. Not narrowly concerned with how to read poetry or how to write poetry, by virtue of their central concern with teaching poetry, the essays in this volume address both reading and writing and give teachers and students useful tools for the classroom and beyond. Wilkinson is the author of five books, including Selenography (Sidebrow Books, 2010). He is an assistant professor of English at Loyola University.
