One for the Money: The Sentence as a Poetic Form: A Poetry Workshop Handbook and Anthology
Paperback - English

The one-sentence poem has proven to be a compelling and persistent poetic device through the ages. This anthology offers strategies and prompts for using the single sentence as a principle of poetic structure, a rhetorical tool, and a stimulus. The book includes an extraordinary array of one-sentence poems from a wide range of historical periods, poetic perspectives, and lengths--from epigrams and aphorisms to sonnets, lyrics, and narratives that range over several pages. More than 80 poets are represented, from Shakespeare to Kay Ryan.

About Author

Buckley, Christopher
Christopher Buckley is the pen name of Christopher Buckley. He divides his time between the bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, and the koi pond, which serves as a sushi bar for the benefit of herons. When not cursing herons, he plants expensive bulbs for the winter nourishment of the abundant local squirrel population. His next book is "Game of Drones", a candid and sure-to-be-controversial account of his experiences deploying miniature unmanned aerial vehicles in his yard for purposes of deterrence and, to be honest, revenge.

Young, Gary
A versatile poet and book artist, Gary Young also edits for the Greenhouse Review Press. His work has been featured in magazines including The American Poetry Review and The Kenyon Review, and his printing appears in major museums. In 2003 he won the William Carlos Williams Award for No Other Life, also available from Heyday Books.
