About Book

Don Paterson is not only one of our great poets, but also an esteemed authority on the art of poetry. The Poem is a treatise on the art of poetry in three sections - one on lyric, the music of poetic speech; one on sign, and how poetry makes its unique kind of sense; and one on metre, the rhythm of the poetic line.
