Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Assigned more than any other introductory poetry text on the market!

Features

-- Known for its exemplary poetry selections, Perrine's Sound and Sense is written for the student who is beginning a serious study of poetry.

-- Discusses the elements of poetry, teaching students how to read, understand, and evaluate the genre.

-- A broad range of authors, covering classic, modern, and contemporary selections, provide students with a wide range of reading experience.

-- Fourteen chapters present the elements of poetry, putting an emphasis on how the reader can use the elements to interpret poetry as well as why the poet used those particular elements.

-- Each chapter contains two parts: a discussion of the topic indicated by the chapter title, with illustrative poems and a relevant selection of poems with study questions for further illustration of the topic.

-- Three poets — Emily Dickinson, John Donne, and Robert Frost — are represented by a sufficient number of poems in the chapters and in Part 3 to support study of them as individual artists.

New to Edition

-- With the addition of a new co-author, Greg Johnson, students will continue to receive clear, precise writing and practical organization initiated years ago by Perrine.

-- The number of poems by women and ethnic minorities has increased, presenting a broader canon.

-- Information on writing is no longer in an appendix, but has been expanded and has been given a more prominent position in the text as Part 2, "Writing about Poetry."

-- Suggestions for Writing have been added to most of the chapter presentations.

-- Chapters 15 and 16 have been retitled "Evaluating Poetry 1" and "Evaluating Poetry 2."
