Poetry : The Ultimate Guide, Paperback / softback Book

Poetry : The Ultimate Guide Paperback / softback


Richard Bradford's new introduction to poetry begins with and answers the slippery question, 'what is poetry?'.

The book provides a compact history of English poetry from the 16th century to the present day and surveys the major critical and theoretical approaches to verse.

It tackles the important issues of gender, race and nationality and concludes with a lengthy account of how to recognise good poetry. This engaging and readable book is accessible to all readers, from those who simply enjoy poetry through university first years to graduate students.

Poetry: The Ultimate Guide provides the technical and critical tools you need to approach and evaluate poetry, and to articulate your own views.
