Su questo libro:
Their pitcher walks our leadoff man.
Greg moves him up to second with a perfect
sacrifice. Fabian loops one into right.
I?m up. Two on, one out. I?m the cleanup
man. My job is to bring these guys home.
MVP Kevin Boland gets the news that he has mono and won?t be seeing a baseball field for a while, and he suddenly finds himself scrawling a poem down the middle of a page in his journal. To get some help, he cops a poetry book from his dad?s den. Before Kevin knows it, he?s writing in verse about stuff like, Will his jock friends give up on him? What?s the deal with girlfriends? Surprisingly enough, after his health improves, he keeps on writing - about the smart-talking Latina girl who thinks poets are cool, even about his mother, whose death is a still-tender loss for which he finally finds the words.
Written in free verse with examples of several poetic forms slipped into the mix, including a sonnet, haiku, pastoral, and even a pantoum, this funny, poignant story by a master of dialogue is an English teacher?s dream - sure to hook poetry lovers, baseball fanatics, mono recoverers, and everyone in between.
Dall'autore: RON KOERTGE: "I find it funny that kids will willingly follow the rules in any game, but if you give them rules for writing poetry, they rebel!"
