​“I wanted to make the case for the value of imitation as a creative strategy,” writes David Lehman about this collection of poems in homage to over seventy poets who have left an impression, from Catullus and Li Po to Gwendolyn Brooks and Charles Bukowski, and various styles and forms that inspire, from jazz standards to astrology. A useful resource for creative writers, it may also influence readers to create their own set of “in the manner of” poems.
