    Featuring formal poems, some familiar and some never before published, from the likes of Eleanor Farjeon (aubade), X.J. Kennedy (elegy), Ogden Nash (couplet), Liz Rosenberg (pantoum), and William Shakespeare, the sonnet king himself, A Kick in the Head perfectly illustrates Robert Frost's maxim that poetry without rules is like a tennis match /5(72).

Therefore, the chief strength of A Kick in the Head is as a source of inspiration, rather than an anthology. This is a book that invites participation, and I cannot think of a better induction for budding poets than the “Kick in the Head” challenge of writing a poem a week, using each of Janeczko’s forms.
