Beautiful and Pointless: A Guide to Modern Poetry by David Orr explores how readers view poetry but helps them understand and appreciate the craft itself.
With some forms of poetry being misunderstood, Beautiful and Pointless: A Guide to Modern Poetry helps you view poetry in a new light.
One of the reasons why readers may misunderstand a poem is due to struggling to enjoy the art for what it is instead of imagining what they want it to be.
Award-winning critic David Orr explores poetry and its existence in today’s society. Orr details how poetry may seem strange and foreign in the beginning but just as when a person meets someone new or travels to a new place, in time you learn to accept it overtime by learning and appreciating certain aspects.
Beautiful and Pointless helps you understand the sometimes “odd” sides of poetry from a poet’s point-of-view. The book examines discussions among poets and poetry readers as well as helping you pick up certain details that may be missed while engaging in the art of poetry.
Beautiful and Pointless: A Guide to Modern Poetry by David Orr is available at Barnes and Noble Bookseller locations including Barnes and Noble located at 4015 Medina Road Akron/Fairlawn. The book is available in hardcover and eBook formats.
