Learning sources for poetry

2 posts

So I want resources about poetry that can teach me as much as possible about basics of meter and rhyme and whatever as well as the historical origins of various styles. I’m looking for something that might have examples of poems in it but I’m not looking to read a lot from one person or something like that, I"m really looking for more of a resource about poetry as a whole and where and when ideas came up in it
Books or online sources are really what I’m looking for

I found these books to be helpful:
Ordinary genius—Kim Addonizio
A Poetry Handbood—Mary Oliver
Good luck!
