This book takes an interdisciplinary approach to using and creating poetry for conducting and reporting social research. It includes examples of poetry, interviews of poets, and practical exercises that will enhance the discussion of poetry writing as a method. When used as a teaching guide this book will encourage students to consider the importance of form and function in poetry for qualitative methods. It also answers the question of how to teach the creation and evaluation of poetry, it combats the perception that poetry is too difficult or mysterious to use as research and that only poets should be concerned with poetic craft.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"this is a refreshing book that I would recommend that social scientists read even if they are not planning to write poetry. This is because Faulkner raises important questions about the epistemology of language - the tool that social scientists use to communicate their thoughts and research findings.... Books such as Poetry as Method can help extend our understanding and use of language, and offer food for thought regarding how we as social scientists use language (and how we could use it)."
--Venessa May, Qualitative Research

"Sandra Faulkner's thorough and accessible exploration of poetic inquiry in the social sciences synthesizes a mastery of both poetry and ethnographic research. This smart study forces would-be poet-researchers to consider questions of craft and quality in order to improve their work. She argues, quite rightly, that any poem, regardless of the author's prescribed discipline, must strive to become art. Without it, the poet-researcher honors neither the genre nor the reports from the field. In an increasingly interdisciplinary world and academy, this book makes an argument necessary for advancing qualitative narrative study. Just as no one would take the stage at Carnegie Hall without years of practice, no researcher should assume the hubris of publishing poetry without years of practice, study and technique. As a poet, I am very pleased to see this book in the world."
--Camille-Yvette Welsch, Poet
