The third in a series of poetry books that I published. This one was released by LitFire Press in 2016.
It combines photographs taken by me with an associated poem in various formats to provide symmetry of image and verse. All the poems and all the photographs in the book are mine. My introduction gives a very good overview of poetic forms and techniques. The back of the book, contains an alphabetical glossary identifying which poem is written in each manner. I include photographs, because I am also a photographer. I believe that the two Genre complement each other.
Volume 3 continues the basic poetic concepts, structure, and techniques as the first two books, then adds further knowledge using more advanced techniques such as: colloquialism, connotation, ekphrastics, elision, exhortation, folksy language, humor, hyperbole, irony, kinesthesia, personification, question, simile, speaker technique, and warning.
Each poem contains a full page image accompanied by the poem on the adjoining page. In addition there are author notes related to each poem the typically contains three elements: a discussion of the poetic context, a description of the poetic format, and a note on the image. In addition, this volume identifies the techniques used within each poem. This makes the book very unique.
Here’s a link to amazon where is can be purchased.
