Hearing and speaking are essential to making poems live. Poems are a physical experience. This book explains how to find your way to the heart of a poem by taking it off the page. The authors have taught poetry successfully with this method for many years and now they share it beyond their own classrooms.Taking poems off the page: a teacher and a poet share their years of experience making poetry live. “Hard to believe that anyone serious about poetry, either student or teacher, wouldn't want to own this book. Reading Sound Ideas is like being in a class with the best poet and teacher of your life. McCarthy and Quinn are those poet teachers, each having fallen in love with poetry, each having given over their lives to its beauty and power. And this book is that classroom, one which comes alive with force and pleasure, with their shared belief that poetry itself comes truly alive when one speaks and hears it, when it enters the consciousness through that breath and release, when it has the power to change lives. This book offers something new and necessary in the study of poetry.” — John Hogden “Poetry weds the body to the soul, and Sound Ideas is a superb introduction to the manifold ways in which poets touch us to the core of our being. . . . This should be required reading for anyone interested in poetry, particularly for those who hope to make poems themselves. A brilliant book.” —Christopher Merrill
