9780340985151: Studying Poetry

Studying Poetry is a fun, concise and helpful guide to understanding poetry which is divided into three parts, form and meaning, critical approaches and interpreting poetry, all of which help to illuminate the beauty and validity of poetry using a wide variety of examples, from Dylan Thomas to Bob Dylan.   Key Features:

  • An accessible and thought-provoking introduction to poetry which takes students through the essentials to enhance both their understanding and their appreciation.
  • Contains a wonderfully diverse collection of poems, from Bob Dylan to Dylan Thomas, which truly engage the reader.
  • The authors' style mixes humor with erudition and allows students to easily absorb the information they need without repetitive re-reading.
  • New to this edition is a chapter on the importance of poetry which examines the many ways in which poetry is expressed in youth culture today.
  • This second edition has also seen updates throughout and the introduction of some more contemporary poems to align with course curriculum. 
  • "synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

    About the Author:

    Stephen Matterson is Professor of English and Head of the School of English at Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland.   Darryl Jones is Senior Lecturer in English at Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland.

    Review:

    "Its great virtue lies in the amount of questions it raises. [The authors’ enthusiasm, engagement and occasional knowingly facetious asides should appeal to, and enlighten, bright [students. They will also find the glossary of technical and theoretical terms very useful."—The Times Educational Supplement
