What Studying Rhetoric Taught Me About Writing Poetry
Andy Meyer

One of the most important books I ever read in my life — Aristotle’s Poetics and Rhetoric. I think that was the day that my nerdiness/love for rhetoric became official. Aka — the moment my friends found out my weekend plans were reading Aristotle for fun! (Not cool apparently) but that’s probably bc they didn’t know the man’s scribbles were studied! Scribbles! Sorry, I’m getting too excited here-my Sheldon is showing!

I will be back to discuss more on this topic in the meantime, thank you for writing this piece.
