Reading Poetry: An Introduction

Thomas Furniss, Michael Bath

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

ReadingPoetry stands out from other introductions to poetry in its brilliant combination of practical guidance and theoretical savvy. Students who use this book will be helped to enjoy and discuss poems, introduced to some of the major varieties of poetic criticism, and invited to reflect on what makes poetry important today. Reading Poetry is, in my view, the best introductory book on the study of poetry available.
