In Making Your Own Days, celebrated poet Kenneth Koch writes about poetry as on one has written about it before - and as if no one had written about it before. Full of fresh and exciting insights and experiences, this book makes the somewhat mysterious subject of poetry clear for those who read it and for those who write it - and for those who would like to read and write it better. Treating poetry not as a special use of language, but, in fact, as a separate language - unlike the one used in prose and conversation - Koch is able to clarify the nature of poetic inspiration, how poems are written and revised, and what happens in a reader's mind and feelings while reading a poem.
