Clear and lovely full of lessons to pass on to my poets in the making an to my poets in the making An uide for any student with or without a teacher While some of the poems included to illustrate particular elements of craft were interesting the analyses of said poems were trite condescending and shallow The very few writing prompts the text offers are fine #but nothing new I m not sure if this is just an issue with my copy of the book but #nothing new I m not sure if this is just an issue with my copy of the book but Poet s Notecard sections look like they were printed with like the Poet s Notecard sections look like they were printed with like the cent copier at the public library dark and rainy almost to the point of illegibility although frankly these notecards are basically arbage so it s not like not being able to read them is too devastating Overall for a text that claims to be a Only a Whisper guide The Mind s Eye does very littleuiding the only useful thing I took away from reading it was a few new poets to check. KEY BENEFIT The Mind's Eye written by a published poet focuses on imagery and sound and has the added benefit of being concise inexpensive and hand.
