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 poetry'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.
