about Poetry Out Loud

Introduction by James Earl Jones. Now in paperback, here are over 100 lyrics, limericks, clerihews, ballads, raps, and other poems--famous and infamous, celebrated and obscure--that come alive when read aloud. Accompanying each poem are notes, introductions to basic poetic terms, and hints on reading them aloud. James Earl Jones, one of America's greatest living actors, introduces the book and tells how reciting poetry as a child helped him overcome a speech impediment and discover his own voice again.

"A timeless selection . . . Each poem, read aloud, reverberates in the reader."--Writer's Digest

"Poems that simply sing when you read them aloud."--The Hartford Courant.

A BOOK-OF-THE-MONTH CLUB, QUALITY PAPERBACK BOOK CLUB, and WRITER'S DIGEST BOOK CLUB selection. Now in its 8th printing.
