Out of Wonder: Poems Celebrating Poets

(1) 4-6 Illustrated by Ekua Holmes. With Marjory Wentworth and Chris Colderley. Twenty poems, each "celebrating" a notable poet, variously mimic poets' styles, incorporate their feelings and themes, or acknowledge and thank them. The celebrated poets represent a wide range of cultures and time periods. Vibrant, arresting mixed-media collages complement and extend the themes and rich imagery presented in the poems. Educators teaching poetry or introducing influential poets will welcome this stellar title. Biographical information appended.
