Beautiful and Pointless: A Guide to Modern Poetry

Beautiful and Pointless: A Guide to Modern Poetry - David Orr Reading this, as I hoped, prompted me to read more poetry, right away. I liked the appetite for poetry that the author creates, intentionally I presume. What I didn't really care for was the digression into the struggles of the modern poet with other modern poets and the documentation of the drama. A good and interesting read but not great, not a must-read. If you want to read about modern poetry, you could do much worse.
