Rose, Where Did You Get that Red?
Author: Kenneth Koch
Publisher: Vintage (1990)
A classic that revolutionized the way children are taught to read and write poetry. The celebrated poet Kenneth Koch conveys the imaginative splendor of great poetry—by Blake, Donne, Stevens, Lorca, and others—and then shows how it maybe taught so as to help children write poetry of their own. For this edition, the author has written a new introduction and a special afterword for teachers.
