Many students today are puzzled by the meaning and purpose of poetry. Poems, Poets, Poetry, Compact Third Edition demystifies the form and introduces students to its artistry and pleasures, using methods that Helen Vendler has successfully used herself over her long, celebrated career. Guided by Vendler's erudite yet down-to-earth approach, students at all levels can benefit from her authoritative instruction. Her blend of recent and canonical poets includes a diverse array of voices represented by a broad selection of poetic forms. Newly offered in a more portable, concise volume (in print and as an e-book), this text engages students in effective ways of reading, writing about, and taking delight in poetry.

About the Author:

HELEN VENDLER, critic and scholar of English-language poetry from the seventeenth century to the present, is A.

She has been poetry critic of The New Yorker since 1978, and has been a member of the Pulitzer Prize jury for poetry. Author of ground-breaking scholarly studies on George Herbert, John Keats, Wallace Stevens, William Butler Yeats, Shakespeare's sonnets, and Seamus Heaney, she won the National Book Critic's Circle Award for Criticism in 1981, and her criticism has been collected in several volumes, including Part of Nature, Part of Us, The Music of What Happens, and Soul Says.
