Reading Poetry : An Introduction, Paperback Book

Reading Poetry : An Introduction Paperback

Description

Reading Poetry offers a comprehensive and accessible guide to the art of reading poetry.

Successive chapters introduce key skills and critical or theoretical issues, enabling users to read poetry with enjoyment, insight and an awareness of the implications of what they are doing.

This new edition includes a new chapter on `Post-colonial Poetry', a substantial increase in the number of end-of-chapter interactive exercises, and a comprehensive Glossary of poetic terms.

Not just an add-on, the Glossary works as a key resource for the structuring of particular topics in any individual teaching or learning programme.

Many of the exercises and interactive discussions develop not only the skills of competent close reading but also the necessary confidence and experience in locating historical and other contextual information through library or internet searches.

The aim is to enhance readers' literary and scholarly competence - and to make it fun!
