To Read a Poem

Přední strana obálky
Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1992 - Počet stran: 411
To Read a Poem begins the study of poetry by examining whole poems, emphasizing the goal of reading is not the analysis of parts but the understanding of wholes. For a fuller definition of petry's elements, later chapters concentrate on parts. Selections are frequently modern or contemporary, supplementing them with biographical notes on all poets. To Read a Poem will help students read poetry with intelligence, gusto, and discrimination.
