Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Poetry Reader's Toolkit was written to be just that: a toolkit to help students read and understand poetry. Students will learn how relevant and accessible poetry can be by walking through a wide variety of poems in a straightforward, conversational tone. This easy to read guide shows students how poetry conveys emotion, introduces them to different imagery, explores sound, covers metaphors and similes, and explains verse forms, line breaks, and numerous other poetic devices.

Synopsis:

With the tools you will find in this book, you will learn how relevant and accessible poetry can be. And by walking you through a wide variety of poems in a straightforward, conversational tone, the text shows you these tools in operation. Approaching poems from different angles, the text explores such topics as: why poetry; emotions; images; stories; sound; metaphors, similes, and symbols; a grab bag of devices; irrationality, dreams, and paradox; and welding it together.
