The Triggering Town: Lectures and Essays on Poetry and Writing
by Richard Hugo
No current Talk conversations about this book.
Hugo's essays are absolutely necessary reading for any budding poet. He quickly teaches the young writer what not to do and how to focus on important mechanics and styles of writing poetry.
Richard Hugo was that rare phenomenon of American letters--a distinguished poet who was also an inspiring teacher. The Triggering Town is Hugo's now-classic collection of lectures, essays, and reflections, all "directed toward helping with that silly, absurd, maddening, futile, enormously rewarding activity: writing poems." Anyone, from the beginning poet to the mature writer to the lover of literature, will benefit greatly from Hugo's sayd, playful, profound insights and advice concerning the mysteries of literary creation.
