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.
