What are some good books on poetry?

Currently reading Ron Pretty's 'Creating Poetry' and Rilke's 'Letters to a Young Poet'. I'm not so much interested in writing poetry as understanding and appreciating/critiquing it better.

But that's just a book of poetry, not on poetry, isn't it? Or is it really meta or some shit?

Aristotle's poetics is probably a good place as any to start.

stop recommending shit you've never read you idiot. poetics is primarily on dramatic theory. republic has more poetic discussion than that.

Western Wind by Nims is one of the best books on poetry. It breaks down techniques and has tons of examples

I found this book called The Art of Poetry by Shira Wolosky. It was very helpful for pleb like me, and it also has the endorsements of Harold Bloom and Robert Fagles.
