Om författaren

Widely anthologized, Kennedy's poetry may not be as influential among contemporary poets as others' because of his preference for, in his words, "old-fangled structures most poets have junked these days." As Kennedy's comments on his verse suggest, his poetry is witty, concise, and unpretentious. visa mer His subject matter is drawn from the everyday including his Catholic background and middle-class suburban life. Yet his concerns can be profound including death, violence, suicide, and Genesis. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Allmänna fakta



Primary to Intermediate
A book of poems about animals, people, real life things and made up things, but lots of different people
This book gives me Anamalia vibes, at least in the illustrations. I wish I had time to read the whole thing. This'd be fun to read a poem a day in my classroom.
