Item description for The Roar on the Other Side: A Guide for Student Poets by Suzanne U. Clark, Suzanne U. Rhodes & Clark Suzanne...
Overview Poetry stands at the center of Christian living. We glorify God through noticing, comparing, and naming in sometimes startling ways. Unlike the eye of science, poetry sees the deeper meanings that bind seemingly disjointed facts together. Poetry is the language of revelation, a most immediate means by which we may suspect the Mystery of the Word inhabiting our lives. The Roar on the Other Side is an invaluable introduction to the habits and skills that make a poet; more importantly, it is an introduction to the "vision" that makes a poet worth reading.
Publishers Description Suzanne Rhodes, a longtime poet and teacher, offers "The Roar on the Other Side" as an introductory guide for students (junior high and up). Clear and imaginative, this book makes poetry approachable. Focusing on the importance of sight and the necessity of practice, Rhodes easily communicates the joy of words to her readers and helps them see how good poetry binds all seemingly-contradictory things together. Students will emerge from this book with a good handle on the basics of writing poetry and a new appreciation for the awesome world wherein we live.
