In Poetry As Insurgent Art, Lawrence Ferlinghetti offers, in prose, his primer of what poetry is, could be, should be.
The result is by turns tender and furious, personal and political. If you are a reader of poetry, find out what is missing from the usual fare you are served; if you are a poet, read at your own risk—you will never again look at your role in the same way.
