Summary
This wide-ranging journey through the history and highlights of the world's poetry covers everything from epics and odes to nonsense verse and haikus, and includes a full-length CD! Hey there! I'm Professor Driscoll, and I'll be your guide as we explore the wonderful world of poetry, a fun and exciting place where anything can happen through the magic power of words. Get ready to visit imaginary lands filled with fascinating creatures like "Jabberwocks", or to travel backwards in time over 2,000 years to ancient Greece, or to be transported to far-away places like mountains, meadows, or big city streets. On the first part of our journey we'll get to know all the different types of poetry with their weird and wonderful names like lyric, haiku, sonnet, and villanelle. During the second part we'll get to meet some of the most famous poets of all time. Brilliant men and women such as William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Maya Angelou, and many more, who have used their imaginations to create all of the wonderful places and people we'll read about in this book. Best of all, we can listen to the poems being read aloud as we read along on the page. Every time you see the PLAY TRACK symbol you'll know it's time to listen to the CD and hear the poetry come to life. So, turn the page. Turn on your CD player. Turn on your imagination and let's be on our way!
