Following the tremendous success of our Musician's Notebook, this parchment notebook is a worthy companion for poets and wordsmiths of all ages. Part blank journal, part helpful workbook and reference, its pages are highlighted with insights from famous poets, an exercise to summon the muse, and definitions of classic poetic techniques. The content is first-rate, and the format is wonderfully inspiring. This ingenious and useful writing tool also includes a six-page appendix with rules of form, meter, and rhythm to help readers compose their own sonnets, haiku, and other poems.
