<b>Poetry to Heal, Inspire and Enjoy</b>
<br>
<br>
<i>Poetry Rx</i> presents 50 great poems as seen through the eyes of a renowned psychiatrist and
<i>New York Times</i> bestseller. In this book, you will find insights into love, sorrow, ecstasy and everything in between: Love in the moment or for a lifetime; love that is fulfilling or addictive; when to break up and how to survive when someone breaks up with you.
<br>
<br>Separate sections deal with responses to the natural world, and the varieties of human experience (such as hope, reconciliation, leaving home, faith, self-actualization, trauma, anger, and the thrill of discovery). Other sections involve finding your way in the world and the search for meaning, as well as the final stages of life.
<br>
<br>In describing this multitude of human experiences, using vignettes from his work and life, Rosenthal serves as a comforting guide to these poetic works of genius. Through his writing, the workings of the mind, as depicted by these gifted writers speak to us as intimately as our closest friends.
<br>
<br>Rosenthal also delves into the science of mind and brain. Who would have thought, for example, that listening to poetry can cause people to have goosebumps by activating the reward centers of the brain? Yet research shows that to be true.
<br>
<br>And who were these fascinating poets? In a short biosketch that accompanies each poem, Rosenthal draws connections between the poets and their poems that help us understand the enigmatic minds that gave birth to these masterworks. Altogether, a fulfilling and intriguing must-read for anyone interested in poetry, the mind, self-help and genius.
Never before have we had a tour by such a tour guide through great poetry which can, heal, inspire and bring joy to our lives.
"Norman Rosenthal, who first described seasonal affective disorder and pioneered the use of light therapy, and who has written eloquently on many psychological topics, now turns his attention in a new direction in his latest book
<i>Poetry Rx.</i> The premise of this new book is that poems can not only inspire and enliven, but actually heal psychological wounds.
<br>
<br>"Rosenthal supports his premise with 50 great poems that span four centuries and cover fundamental aspects of the human condition -- such as loving and losing, aging and dying, to name just a few.
<br>
<br>"In discussing the psychological insights the poems offer and specific ways to implement them, Rosenthal draws on his decades-long career as a psychiatrist and researcher. For someone who does not come from an academic background in literature, he shows astonishing mastery of his subject. His discussion of the psychological insights and therapeutic implications of the poems offers novel perspectives even for someone thoroughly versed in the art.
<br>
<br>"An especially enjoyable feature of the book is the recurring section connecting the poem and the poet. I predict that
<i>Poetry Rx</i> will make good on the promise of its subtitle for a broad range of readers seeking renewal and inspiration through the art of poetry. It is also a great read, entertaining as it teaches. These are, after all, poems the doctor ordered. But what a doctor! And what poems! " -

<i>Poetry Rx.</i> Transfixed, she listened as I read Emily Dickinson’s powerful and comforting words. Whether you are a professional in the healing arts, or someone seeking the profound wisdom of the great poets, this book is nothing less than transformative." -

<br>&gt;"Dr. Rosenthal, a renowned psychiatric researcher and clinician, has given us a gift with
<i>Poetry Rx.</i> He takes us on a journey through the varieties of human experience and shows us specifically how poetry has the power to help us understand ourselves and to heal. The wonderful effect of Rosenthal’s humanity and lucid analysis is to make us feel that our own experiences are universal and that we are not alone." -
