About This Book

"David Orr is no starry-eyed cheerleader for contemporary poetry; Orr' s a critic, and a good one. Beautiful & Pointless is a clear-eyed, opinionated, and idiosyncratic guide to a vibrant but endangered art form, essential reading for anyone who loves poetry, and also for those of us who mostly just admire it from afar. " — Tom Perrotta Award-winning New York Times Book Review poetry columnist David Orr delivers an engaging, amusing, and stimulating tour through the world of poetry. With echoes of Francine Prose' s Reading Like a Writer, Orr' s Beautiful & Pointless offers a smart and funny approach to appreciating an art form that many find difficult to embrace.
