Beautiful & Pointless: A Guide to Modern Poetry by David Orr

<p>David Orr is no starry-eyed cheerleader for contemporary poetry; Orrs a critic, and a good one. . . . <i>Beautiful & Pointless</i> 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</p> <p>Award-winning <i>New York Times Book Review</i> poetry columnist David Orr delivers an engaging, amusing, and stimulating tour through the world of poetry. With echoes of Francine Proses <i>Reading Like a Writer</i>, Orrs <i>Beautiful & Pointless</i> offers a smart and funny approach to appreciating an art form that many find difficult to embrace.</p
