Review:

Of course, you don't need a manual to tell you what kind of poetry you ought to like and why. But for a lot of us who are drawn to the power of the poetic word, it's useful and pleasant to develop a vocabulary to help explain the mysterious appeal of our favorite poems. Laurie E. Rozakis has done a fine job of balancing a straightforward and conversational tone with nuts-and-bolts technical matters, and her explanations of form, vision, and poetic movements are both entertaining and enlightening. How to Interpret Poetry is recommended for poetry lovers as well as for students and aspiring poets.

From the Publisher:

Features and Benefits:
-Explains all of the important poetic devices, including meter and rhyme, simile and metaphor, and imagery and allusion.
- Appeals to both the novice and seasoned poet.
