I’m going to try and not be flippant.  In order to save you time and money, I will condense  Donall Revell‘s book, The Art of Attention: A Poet’s Eye, to one sentence.

Pay attention.

For those of you who have time for more than two words, I’ll expand to three sentences.

  1. Pay attention.
  2. Fall in love with the world
  3. Write.

That aside, Revell does spend considerable time on select poems.  Those instances are worth reading, but can become tiresome as the same points are reiterated.
