The Art Of series is a new series of brief books by contemporary writers on important craft issues. Each book investigates an element of the craft of fiction, creative nonfiction, or poetry by discussing works by authors past and present. The books in the Art Of series are not strictly manuals, but serve readers and writers by illuminating aspects of the craft of writing that people think they already know but don’t really know. Donald Revell argues passionately for the transformation that imaginative experience elicits through poetry. “The art of poetry is not about the acquisition of wiles or the deployment of strategies,” Revell writes. “Beginning in the senses, imagination senses farther, senses more.” Using examples from his own poetry
and translations and from Blake and Thoreau to Ronald Johnson and John Ashbery, Revell’s The Art of Attention: A Poet’s Eye takes the writer beyond the workshop and into the world of vision.

Industry Reviews

"The Art Of series is meant to restore criticism as an art, with writers examining features of their craft in lively and colorful prose." --Charles Baxter
