ON  MONSTERS by StephenT. Asma (NYC; Oxford University Press, 2009) hb ISBN 978-0-19-533616-0  $27.95.

This is not a poetry collection.  It is an interesting and fast paced look on the nature, creation and origins of monsters in cultures and media.  Monsters whether they be natural or mythic,human or alien, our own delusions or real threat, represents an important theme and icon in poetry.  Especially the kind of poetry this blog is all about.  It ought to be in your library of useful resources when it comes to writing poetry.
