Learn Poetry-Easy!

Do you like poetry but find it difficult to understand? Then Vanessa has created this book just for you!


The first part of this book is a very basic poetry primer written with non-college people in mind.  She says: "When I first started to write poetry, I would talk about it a lot. I found that I couldn't walk in a room without finding another person who claimed to love it. Yet the sales of poetry books are way down, so much that it is hard to find a traditional publisher that will take on a poetry book. There is even a running discussion as to whether poetry is dead." Vanessa says she created this book for those who want to understand poetry better, but don't want to get a college degree to do it.

The second half of this book is a collection of more of Vanessa's very emotional poetry, including poems like A Room Full of Angry Men, which is Vanessa's description of Congress, and I Can't Get Off te Floor, which talks about how it can feel to give up personal power to a controlled substance.
