    Okay so to be honest two stars may be a little generous As you can probably already tell I greatly dislike this book Sure it might take you by the hand and lead you through a vast number and variety of poems However the book has exactly one interpretation for each poem and if you don't nail it exactly you get penalized in AP lit Moreover finding answers to the uestions presented in the book is uite difficult It's not in the back of the book and it's not easy to find on the internet Conseuently you never really know when you have a correct or incorrect interpretation of a poem unless Mrs Gray validates your claims It's a shame that the book does not really allow loose interpretations of the selected poems

  2. Doug Doug says:

    What I liked most about this book compared to other instructive books of poetry is the selection of formalist poetry Granted it seemed like half of it was Emily Dickinson and I'm not even sure if that's an exaggeration to be honest but that's okay because Emily Dickinson had some great poems and her layers are often friendly to the understanding This book offers a very intensive introduction to how it intends to appraise the poems which makes it great for anyone new to poetry as well as an extensive look at the form and sound of formalismIt's not uite as good for contemporary poems as many other poetry guides on the market but that is a problem which solves itself as the majority of books on the market are a contemporary focus

    It's a bit dry but tons of great poems I really like how they go over meter it's one of the better tutorials on the matter I don't particularly love the organization of the book and I really wish there were a bit on each poet than the years they lived My favorite part of the book are the guiding uestions Very helpful as you try to breakdown and understand a poemThe most offensive thing to me was the little dissertation on how a poem is determined to be 'great' There is an insulting little concept of 'ualified reader' and a dubious little math problem on 'perfection' and 'scope' old school to say the least

  4. Dini Dini says:

    This was the poetry bible for first year students in my English major Very useful especially for those who need guidance in understanding poetry like me for instance ;P Those uestions at the end of each poem I can't tell you how much that helped me form some semblance of interpretation I just found my copy of this book actually it's my sister's copy I used her old books for class among other books that I forgot I still have so I guess it would be useful whenever I feel the need for some poetic spirit I bet my college friends would want to comment on this Go on guys D

    The ultimate user's manual for reading poetry

  6. Tamsin Barlow Tamsin Barlow says:

    It is good every once in a while to read a text book to stretch yourself beyond your usual comfortable limits to give yourself homework And among all the books you are reading to have a book of poetry to pop into now and then just to wake you from your drowsy comfort

  7. Xenophon Hendrix Xenophon Hendrix says:

    This book is suitable for self teaching for those who want to learn about poetry

  8. Randy Cauthen Randy Cauthen says:

    How did this get to be the standard text? The dude's taste is dubious his ear is dubious and he's not a poet

  9. Tama Tama says:

    This introduction to poetry is standard Basic elements from pattern to figurative language imagery allusions rhythms tones are all discussed simply and cogently with classic examplessection two is an anthology from yeats and wordsworth to wallace stevens dylan thomas and all thebiggieswonderful to re read this initial serious poetry text Originally started off as basic first year college but extremely applicable to the middle and high schoolera must for any serious poet or teacher's reference library

  10. Adrian Adrian says:

    My high school literature poetry textbook used by the teacher who taught me to love poetry I love the selections in here and the way that it taught me to understand meter and form to appreciate the skill of a poet
