Actor James Franco has added another feather to his cap by writing his own poetry book.

The 34-year-old has titled his lyrical verses Directing Herbert White, reports contactmusic.com.

The piece talks about his work while adapting poet Frank Bidart's poem Herbert White into a short film.

"(It will be) about my relationship to that poem, Frank's relationship to the poem as I have learned about it from knowing Frank and the adaptation process," Franco told New York Times.

The book will be released by Graywolf Press in April, 2014.
