In Robert L. King’s Poetry Is, we have at last, for everyone who aspire to aesthetic experience in the reading and writing of poetry, a superb distillation of José Garcia Villa’s own poetics or “philosophy of poetry”—what poetry is, how it is wrought, and what poetry does; not prescriptive rules but the principles of fine art; not metrics, nor fixed arbitrary forms, nor free verse, nor imagery, for poetry is above all language, music, and form, the precise art of letters in terms of its own medium. Poetry finds its own form, the structure arising from the poet’s control of language; the words chosen for their sound and rhythm to the poet’s inner ear give rise to the imagery; the form is the created work, the content its raw material. For poetry creates its own history, here at last is the art of poetry for our own time.
— Gémino H. Abad, Professor Emeritus, University of the Philippines
