Feathertale’s Big Book of Exquisitely Egregious Poetry and Diverse Versification and So Forth and Such




Fifty poems representing the best poetry from the first five years of Feathertale.com and The Feathertale Review. Edited by Corina Milic with a special introduction by Pamela August Russell (author of B Is for Bad Poetry), Feathertale’s first full-length poetry collection features thirty-five poets and includes classics like “Insults to Be Hurled When Your Star Is in the Ascendant” by Michael Spring, and “Sentences I Said to a Stray Dog in Downtown Gary, Indiana” by Greg Boose.

What the world has to say about poetry and versification and so forth and such: 

“Poetry is the art of creating imaginary gardens with real toads.” — Marianne Moore

“If poets when they get discouraged would blow their brains out, they could write very much better when they got well.” — Mark Twain

“There is the view that poetry should improve your life. I think people confuse it with the Salvation Army.” — John Ashbery

“I gave up on new poetry myself thirty years ago, when most of it began to read like coded messages passing between lonely aliens on a hostile world.” — Russell Baker
